To find the derivative of ( \frac{2}{x+1} ), you can use the quotient rule, which states that if you have a function ( \frac{f(x)}{g(x)} ), its derivative is ( \frac{f'(x)g(x) - f(x)g'(x)}{(g(x))^2} ). Applying this rule, you would find the derivative of the numerator and denominator separately, then use the quotient rule to combine them.
