    Product Rule Question

    Hi
    I would like some help on solving this problem:
    This is what i have done so far:
    3x(2x-1)^3
    u=3x
    v=(2x-1)^3
    3(2x-1)^3+(6(2x-1)^2)(3x)
    (2x-1)^3+8(2x-1)^2(3x)
    This is where i get stuck.

    P.S

    You can continue by factoring out (2x - 1):

    (2x-1)^3+8(2x-1)^2(3x) = (2x-1)^2(2x-1+24x) = \boxed{(2x-1)^2 (26x-1)}
