    or you can multiply out an get \[3(x^2+4x+4)=3x^2+12x+12\]\]

    use chain rule

    then ignore it, it is a crutch. if you know the chain rule it is entirely unnecessary to say \(u=x+2\) \(y=u^2\) etc

    i guess you would say \[u=x+2\] \[y=3u^2\] etc etc, but it is silly

    you have a composition of functions 1) first add 2 2) then square the result, multiply by 3 inner function can be written as \(u=x+2\) outer as \(y=3u^2\)

    so i substitute u= then y is equal to the new equation with u substituted thank you!

    yes, that is correct you get \[6u=6(x+2)\]

    Take the derivative of the inside, take the derivative of the outside leave the inside alone
