Find the derivative of the function f(x)=-3(2-9x)^(1/4)

I have:

f'(x)=-3[1/4(2-9x)(-9)]+0(2-9x)^(1/4)

=-3[-9/4(2-9x)]

=-3(81/4x-9/2)

=-243/4x+27/2

Did I do that right?

When you took the 1/4 power down front, what should have been left behind as the power on the parenthetical?

Lol I redid it without the product rule and that made it a lot easier! I know I got it right now, thanks!
