Derivative of a logarithmic function

  1. Jan 13, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Compute the derivative:
    d/dx log base 10 (x^3 + x^2)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    (3x^2 + 2x)/(ln 10)(x^3 + x^2)
    seems a little off.. not sure though

    thanks for the help in advance!! (:
