# Need c3 differentiation help! watch

1. Hello guys, i need help in knowing what rule to you use for this particular question

y=x^2ln(x-2)6

I used the product rule and got:

U=x^2
V=ln(x-2)^6

My question is, when differentiating V, do i use the natural log rule making it
1/(x-2)^6 or do i use the chain rule? If im talking total rubbish, please provide the solutions. Thanks a lot guys!
2. You use the rule

You could use the chain rule, or see above.
