Simplify the expression 
20120212 

From Christy: Hi guys, ok so I'm having problems with solving this equation since it's been so long I've done precal.
I have to find critical points so I have to find the derivative first. This is what I've done so far
s(t)= (t6)^4 * (t+1)^2
t'= 4(t6)^3*(1)*(t+1)^2+ 2(t+1)(1)*(t6)^4
so this is where I got stuck, which is the algebra part. How can I simplify this to get the answer to figure out the critical points. Answered by Penny Nom.
