(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Differentiate the functions using chain rule. 2(x^{3}−1)(3x^{2}+1)^{4}

2. Relevant equations

Chain Rule = f ' (g(x))g' (x)

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to do using chain rule, but product rule is easier

So using product rule,

= f ' (x) g(x) + f (x)g' (x)

= (2)(x^{3}-1)^{0}(3x^{2})(3x^{2}+1)^{4}+ 2(x^{3}-1)(4)(3x^{2}+1)^{3}(6x)

= (2)(3x^{2})(3x^{2}+1)^{4}+ 8(x^{3}-1)(3x^{2}+1)^{3}(6x)

Can anyone show me how to do it, using chain rule?
