Maximum Likelihood Estimators

Hi, I am trying to fnd the MLE of c with the following density function
f(x) = 2*15^c+1*c*x^29*(15+x^30)^-c-1, x>0

L = Capital Pi {i=1 to n} 2*15^c+1*c*xi^29*(15+xi)^-c-1
= 15^nc*c^n*Capital Pi{(15+xi^30)-c-1}*constant

Could someone please tell me where the x^29 goes? how does it just become a constant?
