PLEASE HELP Find the first and second derivatives of the function.
y = e^8ex. I keep getting y' = e^8ex * 8 and its wrong. how do you do this?

  • calculus-differentiation -

    y=e^(8e^x)
    use the chain rule,
    dy/dx
    = dy/d(8e^x) . d(8e^x)/dx
    = e^(8e^x) . 8e^x
    =8 e^(8e^x).e^x
    =8 e^(8e^x+x)
