what is the derivative of (x1)^2(x3)? I keep expanding it all out to get x^35x^2+6x3 and then finding the derivative of that but I am wrong. So what is it?

you can use the product rule d(x1)^2 d(x3)  * (x3) +  * (x1)^2 dx dx

uhh... so we would find the derivative of (x3) and multiply it too (x1)^2 then take the derivative of (x1)^2 and multiply it by (x3?

= 2(x  1)(x  3) + (x  1)^2

so it would be (x1)^2(1)+(x3)(2(x1))?
