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

Find the derivative of (x^2)(sinx)(tanx)

2. Relevant equations

f(x+y)(d/dx)=(x)(y)d/dx+(y)(x)d/dx

That's for differentiating with 2 terms. With 3, I haven't done it yet.

3. The attempt at a solution

x^2(sinx)(sec^2x)+tanx(sinx)2x+x^2(tanx)(cosx)

x^2(sinx/1)(1/cos^2x)+sinx/cosx)(sinx/1)(2x)+x^2(sinx/cosx)(cosx/a)

sinx/cosx(x^2/cos^2x+2xsinx+x^2cosx)

Another attempt was

2xsinxtanx

Which one do you guys think is right. It may be neither of them.
