**Reiny**, Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 9:00amI have just answered a question on this same function when you posted as "009".

Keep the same name please.

In this case I will simplify the function a bit

f(x) = 1/(1 + e^-x) = (1+e^-x)^-1 * e^x/e^x

= e^x/(e^x + 1)

f ' (x) = ( (e^x + 1)(e^x) - (e^x)(ex) )/(e^x + 1)^2

= e^x/(e^x + 1)^2

f '' (x) = ( (e^x + 1)^2 (e^x) - (e^x)(2)(e^x + 1)(e^x) )/(e^x + 1)^3

I will leave it up to you to simplify the top

**008**, Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 10:51amI solved it ! but I have different solution!!

f''(x) =[ (-e^-x)(1+2e^-x) ] / [1-e^-x]^4
