# How do I find the derivative of this (t^6 +1)^99?

In the parenthesis do you add the 99 and 6 or multiply? so would it be 594^5 or 105t^5? Or do you even distribute the 99?? Thanks

Use the Differentiation Chain Rule and the Differentiation Power Rule.

The derivative is

[ 99 * (t^6 + 1)^98 ] * [ (d/dt) (t^6 + 1) ]

= [ 99 * (t^6 + 1)^98 ] * 6t^5

= 99 * 6t^5 * (t^6 + 1)^98

= 594t^5 * (t^6 + 1)^98

That's the simplest way to write it, I think. Unless you WANT to use the binomial theorem and expand and write down all the terms of (t^6 +1)^98 . . . ;)
