    \[\large f'(x)=(-12x^2+8)(2x^2-4x)+(-4x^3+8x)(4x-4)\]

    First, simplify. Then you should just be able to use the power rule for anti-derivatives.

    then how do you find the original function if you can't integrate

    simplify the function given then integrate to get f(x)

    But he says he's not allowed to integrate? That's what's confusing me. how to you find F(x) without integrating?

    \[\large f(x)=\int\limits\limits (-12x^2+8)(2x^2-4x)+(-4x^3+8x)(4x-4) dx\] \[=\int\limits\limits (4 x-4) \left(8 x-4 x^3\right) \, dx+\int\limits\limits \left(8-12 x^2\right) \left(2 x^2-4 x\right) \, dx\] Expand and integrate using power rule for each term \[\int\limits x^ndx=\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}+c\] \[f(x)=\left(-8 x^5+16 x^4+16 x^3-32 x^2\right)+c\]

    I don't think you can find f(x) without integrating @galacticwavesXX

    You don't need to go through anything elaborate, just look at it. It's fairly clearly a product-rule derivative, so just take the second part of the first term times the first part of the second term. You can add in a constant for good measure.

    If you assume f(x) = g(x) * h(x), then f'(x) = g'(x)h(x) + g(x)h'(x). You can just look at the problem and go from there.

    I'm not talking about any integrating. Look at what I wrote, then look at the question. You can clearly see what h is, and what g is, so you know what f is.

    "... are you finding the anti derivative..?" "yes :S" I suppose finding anti-derivative is the same as integrating. If you don't like the integral sign, then you may take the limit of a sum: \[\lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}\sum_{k=1}^{n} y(x_k)\Delta x\], which is the same as integrating the function.
