At what interval is e^(5x^2) concave up?
I know the second derivative is
100x^2*e^5x^210*e^5x^2
but I just can not figure this one out.
Thank you for your help!

Then this for second derivative and graph

Note that you did the second derivative correctly. It is easier to write it their way y" = 10e^(5x^2)(10x^21)
It is zero at x = +/ .316

so it is positive for x>.316
and for x <.316
