**Hint:**Derivatives are defined as the varying rate of a function with respect to an independent variable. We cannot differentiate this directly. First we need to find the value of \[\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right)\]. After that we differentiate the obtained answer with respect to ‘x’. we know that \[\tan \theta = \dfrac{{{\text{opposite side}}}}{{{\text{adjacent side}}}}\], \[\sec \theta = \dfrac{{{\text{hypotenuse side}}}}{{{\text{adjacent side}}}}\] and using Pythagoras identity we can find the value of \[\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right)\].

**Complete step by step solution:**

Given, \[\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right)\]

Let’s put \[\theta = \arctan (x)\]

Then we have \[\sec \left( \theta \right)\]

Now we took \[\theta = \arctan (x)\],

Then we have \[\tan \theta = x\]

This can be rewrite as

\[\tan \theta = \dfrac{x}{1}\]

We know that \[\tan \theta = \dfrac{{{\text{opposite side}}}}{{{\text{adjacent side}}}}\].

Let’s write a right angle triangle and we need to find hypotenuse side

We need hypotenuse, that is AC.

By Pythagoras identity we have

\[\begin{gathered}

A{C^2} = A{B^2} + B{C^2} \\

A{C^2} = {x^2} + 1 \\

AC = \sqrt {{x^2} + 1} \\

\end{gathered} \]

Thus we have a hypotenuse side.

We know that \[\sec \theta = \dfrac{{{\text{hypotenuse side}}}}{{{\text{adjacent side}}}}\]

\[\sec \theta = \dfrac{{\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} }}{1}\]

That is we have,

\[\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right) = \sqrt {{x^2} + 1} \]

Now differentiating with respect to ‘x’

\[\dfrac{d}{{dx}}\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right) = \dfrac{d}{{dx}}\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} \]

\[ = \dfrac{d}{{dx}}\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} \]

We know that \[\dfrac{d}{{dx}}(\sqrt x ) = \dfrac{1}{{2\sqrt x }}\dfrac{{dx}}{{dx}}\] and here we assume \[{x^2} + 1\] as one term ‘x’. Then we have

\[ = \dfrac{1}{{2\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} }}\dfrac{d}{{dx}}\left( {{x^2} + 1} \right)\]

\[ = \dfrac{{2x}}{{2\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} }}\]

\[ = \dfrac{x}{{\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} }}\]

**Thus the differentiation of \[\sec \left( {\arctan (x)} \right)\] is \[\dfrac{x}{{\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} }}\].**

**Note:**We know the differentiation of \[{x^n}\] with respect to ‘x’ is \[\dfrac{{d({x^n})}}{{dx}} = n.{x^{n - 1}}\]. We also have different rules in the differentiation. Those are

\[ \bullet \]Linear combination rule: The linearity law is very important to emphasize its nature with alternate notation. Symbolically it is specified as \[h'(x) = af'(x) + bg'(x)\]

\[ \bullet \]Product rule: When a derivative of a product of two function is to be found, then we use product rule that is \[\dfrac{{dy}}{{dx}} = u \times \dfrac{{dv}}{{dx}} + v \times

\dfrac{{du}}{{dx}}\].

\[ \bullet \]Chain rule: To find the derivative of composition function or function of a function, we use chain rule. That is \[fog'({x_0}) = [(f'og)({x_0})]g'({x_0})\].

We use these rules depending on the given problem.
