I need help differentiating this question:
3e^4x
that's three e to the power of negative 4x.
when you differentiate, you get:
12e^4x
thanks, but how come it's not 12e^4x1, or do i just not minus a one when the power is a coefficient?
Remember, the differential of e^x is also e^x. So, the final answer is e^xdx. That is, you just differentiate what's in the exponent. In your case, the differential of what's in the exponent is 4, so the final answer is just 4 x the original, or 4 x (3e^4x).

P= 12e^(0.02t) What is the growth rate? I thought it would be 1.98% because I punched in the e^0.02 part and got .98 something and then that minus 1 is r so I got 1.98.
