i am having trouble with a fairly easy derivative - and was wondering if someone could show me the steps how to find this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find this derivative algebraically

f(x) = x^3 (x cubed) at x= -2

The answer in the back of the book says the derivative is 12 - but I did the work and got 4. Please help!
