#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

The product rule states that

#g'(x)=(x^2-4)d/dx[sin(3x)]+sin(3x)d/dx[x^2+4]#

Find each derivative.

The first will require the chain rule:

#d/dx[sin(3x)]=d/dx[3x]*cos(3x)=3cos(3x)#

The next simply requires power rule.

#d/dx[x^2-4]=2x#

Plug these back in to determine

#g'(x)=3(x^2-4)cos(3x)+2xsin(3x)#
