    It definitely the chain rule
    (the product rule though you can use in principle it is not sensible)

    Put it in the form 6(sin(3x))^2 and then power comes down, subtract one from the power, multiply by the derivative of the thing in brackets (ie. sin(3x)) which is cos(3x) and multiply by the derivative of 3x, ie. 3, so you get 36sin(3x)cos(3x) and since we know that sin2A=2sinAcosA then we can simplify it to 18sin(6x)
