**Steve**, Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 11:39amHmm the logical fix would be

ln [x^3 +((x+3)^3)]((x^2)+4)^7

a^3 + b^3 = (a+b)(a^2-ab+b^2), so

x^3 + (x+3)^3 = (x+(x+3))(x^2 - x(x+3) + (x+3)^2)

= (2x+3)(x^2 + 3x + 9)

and the log of the product then becomes

y = ln(2x+3) + ln(x^2+3x+9) + 7ln(x^2+4)

y' = 2/(2x+3) + (2x+3)/(x^2+3x+9) + 14x/(x^2+4)

If my placement of [] is wrong, please feel free to clarify
