THE FIRST X DOT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SQUARED!!!!

(I was given an equation and this is the LHS. I had to differentiate it with respect to x (i think) and this is the result, what is where the ... is?) I had to differentiate an equation and show it equaled another. I have got the RHS right, just cant work out how the LHS goes to 2x double dot
