hi, my first post so pls be gentle!
HNC maths question driving me mad as must be doing something stupidly wrong.
3cos^5x is the question and result should be -15sinx cos^4x
i must be doing something fundamentally wrong as i cant match the answer given. any help greatly appreciated.
Just in case a picture helps...
