    You should use the product rule to diffreniate functions that are multiplied together.

    Let the first function = u (in terms of x)
    and the second = v (in terms of x as well)
    then use the rule dy/dx= u(dv/dx)+ v(du/dx)

    Well, I can't penetrate your brain and know this.
    I cannot explain anything unless I make sure you get the basics.

    Hey, this is combining the chain rule with the product rule
    And I made a stupid mistake of multiplying the wrong thing, thats why I was so annoyed cus ive done it for much more difficult equations.
