What is the derivative of f(x)=e^-3x

  • calculus -

    What is -3*e^-3x ? You ought to have this in your head, automatically.

    f=e^ax
    f'= a*e^ax
    f"=a^2*e^ax

    Thats what I thought but the negative threw me off. I didn't know if I needed to subtract 1 to remove the negative. Or if that mattered in this equation.
