    No, I have no problems like this in my notes. We have no textbook to refer back to.

    thanks for assisting, but I have no idea where to start on this type of problem.

    ok I will put it in simple form:

    (2x^2 - 3x + 1)(4x^3 + 4x -3)^5
    a = (2x^2 - 3x + 1) b = (4x^3 + 4x -3)^5
    so a*b

    using product rule

    a*db/dx + da/dx*b

    and now
    as b = (4x^3 + 4x -3)^5
    make this b = (u)^5
    so . db/dx = 5u^4.du/dx ...
