#### Explanation:

Using the

#color(blue)" Product rule "# If f(x) = g(x).h(x) then f'(x) = g(x)h'(x)+h(x)g'(x)

now g(x) = 4x

#rArr g'(x) = 4 # and

#h(x)=(2x+3)^2 rArr h'(x) = 2(2x+3) d/dx(2x+3) #

Replace these results into f'(x)

#f'(x) = 4x.4(2x+3) + (2x+3)^2 .4 #

#=16x(2x+3) +4(2x+3)^2=32x^2+48x+16x^2+48x+36#

#=48x^2 +96x + 36 #

#### Explanation:

Separate the products into f and g then find each of the derivatives then plug it in to the product rule and simplify.
