I am having trouble with this problem also

derivative

differentiate

f(x)=(3-x)^4(x+5)^3

so far I have 4(3-x(x+5)^3+3(x+5)(3-x)

Not quite right.
Treat it as d/dx[u(x) + v(x)]
= u dv/dx + v du/dx
u(x) = (3-x)^4 v(x) = (x+5)^3
du/dx = -4(3-x))^3 (using the chain rule)
dv/dx = 3(x+5)^2

[4(3-x)^3*(-1)(x+5)^3] + [3(x+5)^2*(3-x)^4]

    Differentiate g(x)=(x^3+1)(3x^2-1) so I use g'(x) X h(x) + g(x) X h'(x) so the derivative of (x^3+1)=3x^2 and (3x^3-1)=6x So (3x^2)(x^3+1) + (x^3+1)(6x) Is this correct so far. If so this is where I am stuck. I am having trouble simplifing.
