Problem: What is the derivative of ln(x+ln x).

My answer: 1/x(x+ln x)

Wow, so simple right? I split the problem into lnx multiplied by ln(ln x) and solved for the derivative. Being a Calculus II course, I am wondering if I was suppose to do more work.

My answer is on the multiple choice answers (which can be a trap!), but the other answers are:

b. x/x+ ln x

c. 1/x+ ln x

d. 1/x+ ln x multiplied by (1 + 1/x)

I hope to be right and questioning for no reason, but we'll see what happens. Thank you so much for the help
