Marla and Paula are confronted with the following question on their calculus exam:

If \(f(x) = (2x)(x^5),\) find \(f'(x).\)

Marla's Solution:

Apply the Product Rule: \[f'(x) = 2(x^5) + 2x(5x^4).\]

Paula's Solution:

\[(2x)(x^5) = 2x^6 \mbox{, apply the Power Rule: } f'(x) = 12x^5.\]

Who got it right?

**Note.** The grader does not require the answer to be fully simplified.
