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

i know i multiply by the power take one off then multiply by derivative of the inside of bracket but i need the substitution method

use chain rule

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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 really would love the substitution method explained

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
i guess you would say \[u=x+2\] \[y=3u^2\] etc etc, but it is silly

ahhhh okay, then dy/du=6u then du/dx=1 mutliply then substitute u thank you <3

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 \[6u=6(x+2)\]
