To differentiate ( f(x) = \tan(3x - x^2) ) using the chain rule, first, identify the outer function and the inner function. In this case, the outer function is ( \tan(x) ) and the inner function is ( 3x - x^2 ).

The derivative of ( \tan(x) ) is ( \sec^2(x) ). The derivative of the inner function, ( 3x - x^2 ), with respect to ( x ) is ( 3 - 2x ).

Now, applying the chain rule, the derivative of ( f(x) ) is given by: [ f'(x) = \sec^2(3x - x^2) \cdot (3 - 2x) ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
