#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

#"differentiate using the "color(blue)"product rule"#

#"given "y=g(x).h(x)" then"#

#dy/dx=g(x)h'(x)+h(x)g'(x)larr" product rule"#

#g(x)=x-1rArrg'(x)=1#

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

#color(white)(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)=6x(x^2+2)^2#

#rArrdy/dx=6x(x-1)(x^2+2)^2+(x^2+2)^3#

#color(white)(rArrdy/dx)=(x^2+2)^2(6x^2-6x+x^2+2)#

#color(white)(rArrdy/dx)=(x^2+2)^2(7x^2-6x+2)#
