1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Heya,
I can expand the term on the LHs and get the term on the RHS no problem :)
But,
I don't understand how the bottom line is arrived at; I think its basically just a backward engineering of the product rule, but I can't get it!

Any help would be useful
