Arg I am banging my head trying to figure this one out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question is :

Differentiate y=[tex]x^{6}(x-1)^{10}(x+2)^{8}[/tex]

I have dealt with mannnny questions with two terms multiplied together and then I just use a combination of the chain rule and the product rule etc. This one is differant though. I have tried the chain rule (multiplying each term by the derivative of each term) to no avail. I got an answer with about 50 terms in it and when I checked on my calculator for what the derivative should be... it's not correct. It doesn't even equal out. Anyways, I don't want an answer :P Can someone just point me in the right direction? Thanks!
