We have to find the derivative of y = ln[(x+1)^4*(x+7)^2*(x+2)^3]
First simplify the expression using the properties of logarithms: log(a*b) = log a + log b and log(a^b) = b*log a
y = ln[(x+1)^4*(x+7)^2*(x+2)^3]
=> y = ln(x+1)^4 + ln(x+7)^2 + ln(x+2)^3
=> y = 4*ln(x+1) + 2*ln(x+7) + 3*ln(x+2)
Now we differentiate the function
y' = 4/(x + 1) + 2 /(x + 7) + 3/(x + 2)
The derivative of the given function is 4/(x + 1) + 2 /(x + 7) + 3/(x + 2)
