**Reiny**, Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 9:39pmyou know that f(1/8) = 1, that is, ...

1 = a(1/8)e^(b/8)

f'(x) = ax(b)(e^(bx) + a(e^(bx))

= e^(bx)(abx + a)

when x = 1/8 this is zero

0 = e^(b/8)(ab/8 + a)

ab/8 + a = 0 or e^(b/8) = 0, the last part has no solution

so ab/8 = -a

ab = -8a

b = -8

then in original, x = 1/8, b = -8

1 = (a/8)e^(-8/8)

8 = a(e^-1)

a = 8e
