y=x(sinx)(cosx)

y=uvw
y'=vwu' + uvw'+uwv'
It is just algebra, and probably some trig identities. 
use the product rule.
hard way:
(1)[(sinx)(cosx)] + {x(cosx)](cosx) + [x(sinx)](sinx)
= sinx cosx + xcos^2 x  xsin^2 x
= 1/2 sin 2x + xcos 2x
easier way:
y = 1/2 x sin 2x
y' = 1/2 (sin 2x) + 1/2 x (2cos 2x)
= 1/2 sin 2x + x cos 2x
