Derivative of (x^4)÷(y^8) with respect to x, given dy÷dx=v

$$\\\frac{d}{dx}\;\frac{x^4}{y^8}\\\\ =\frac{d}{dx}\;x^4*y^{-8}\\\\ =\;4x^3*y^{-8}+x^4*-8y^{-9}\;\;\frac{dy}{dx}\\\\ =\;4x^3*y^{-8}+x^4*-8y^{-9}*v\\\\ =\frac{4x^3}{y^{8}}+\frac{-8x^4v}{y^{9}}\\\\ =\frac{4x^3y-8x^4v}{y^{9}}\\\\ =\frac{4x^3(y-2xv)}{y^{9}}\\\\$$

Could a mathematician check  this please ?
