My ans is 2(8-2x)^2(x^2+1)^4(-3x^2-10x+37). Plz recheck my simplify ans.

-my simplify ans is not the same as wolfram but the long ans is same with wolfram-

= (8-2x)^2 (x^2+1)^4 (-6(x^2+1) + 5(8-2x)(2x))

= (8-2x)^2 (x^2+1)^4 (26x^2 - 80x + 6)

= -8(4-x)^2 (x^2+1)^4 (13x^2 - 40x + 3)

which is what Wolfram gets.

Watch for those pesky chain rule factors and minus signs.

**Ifi**, Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 8:20amI still dont get it how do u simplify from

= (8-2x)^2 (x^2+1)^4 (26x^2 - 80x + 6) to

= -8(4-x)^2 (x^2+1)^4 (13x^2 - 40x + 3) ... ?

What can i conclude from it is (4-x)^2 &(13x^2 - 40x + 3) is divided by 2 . Then (x^2+1)^4 is not simplified by any no. Lastly, why do u put -8? if u try to expand it back it didnt get the same ans.

**Steve**, Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 11:55amReally. Forgotten your algebra I?

(8-2x)^2 = 4(4-x)^2

The intervening two lines should have had a "-" sign in front, from the (-2) factor. My typo. No need to pull out the 8; just felt like it. Prolly should leave it as 8-2x, so it looks more like the original syntax.
