anyhow my problem is that I have to derive the following

$\displaystyle f(x)=(1+4x)^{1861}(1-7x)^{983}$

if f(0)

Im not sure what to do, do i calculate whats inside the () first or do I derive first? and if i derive first, then how do I do it?

Thanks and sorry once again if this is the wrong forum
