1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data f(x) = (x^3+6)^4 * (x^3+4)^6 2. Relevant equations f'(x) = (x^3+6)^4*18x^2(x^3+4)^5 + (x^3+4)^6*12x^2(x^3+6)^3 3. The attempt at a solution Obviously this expression can be simplified, but I haven't the slightest clue on how to do this. I would really appreciate the help!
