I need help finding the derivative of $y=x^3(3x+7)^2$ at $x=-2$ I tried to simplify the function to $y=x^3 (3x+7)(3x+7)$ and the simplify it into two terms and the derivatives of those terms using the product rule, but that doesn't work. Since I don't understand how to approach this type of question (with the power on the outside), I couldn't do this one either: $y=(2x+1)^5(3x+2)^4$ at $x=-1$
I don't need help finding the derivative at the specific values of $x$, I just can't seem to get the general case. BTW, I can only use the product rule as my teacher did not teach the quotient and chain rule to us, so she doesn't allow us to use them.
the answers(aka the derivative):
- $5(2x+1)^4 (2) (3x+2)^4 + (2x+1)^54(3x+2)^3(3)$
