#### Explanation:

Don't bother expanding, just use the chain rule. Let

#dy/dx = (12x +2)3(6x^2 + 2x)^2#

#dy/dx= 3(12x + 2)(6x^2 + 2x)^2#

Hopefully this helps!

#### Explanation:

Applying the chain rule we arrive at the consensus that

we identify the variables within our problem and define that

combining the functions together with recieve the original function

from this point we plug out g(x) and f(x) functions into our rules of derivatives.
