We can differentiate by parts twice. Let u=sinx and v=sin2xsin3x. Differentiate uv and we have udv/dx+vdu/dx, that is: sinxd(sin2xsin3x)/dx+sin2xsin3xcosx. Now we differentiate by parts again: let p=sin2x and q=sin3x, so differentiating pq we have: sin2x.3cos3x+sin3x.2cos2x=3sin2xcos3x+2cos2xsin3x. Put this in place of d(sin2xsin3x)/dx:


That completes the differentiation, but the trig functions could be combined, perhaps because

sin(A+B)=sinAcosB+cosAsinB, and


and if A=B=C=x then we can calculate sin3x and sin2x. It's arguable whether such substitutions would make the derivative more complicated or less complicated! If I have time, perhaps I could try it, or you could try it? But I think the question wants you to focus on the derivative, using the product rule, rather than play around with trig functions.
