Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\large y=3(x^2 + 2x)^2 \) You first take the derivative of the outer, then take the derivative of the inside. Hint: The outer needs just the power rule and the inner needs the power rule as well. I will start by taking the derivative of the outer. \(\large \frac{dy}{dx}=3*2((x^2 + 2x))^{21} *\frac{d}{dx}(x^2 + 2x)\)
