    How do you go from ln(x^10)+e^ln(x) to 10ln(x)+x
  9. Calculus

    if you have g(x)=ln(x^10)+e^ln(x) would you just get 1/x^10+e^ln(x) or am i wrong the way it was explained to me that with e the derivative is just wat it is you don't change it

  24. Algebra 1

    a decimal to a percent ok so allyou have to do is take the decimal .625 and multiply by 100 you use 100 because 100% is going to give you the percentage out of 100 which is what we use. so by multiplying by 100 we know that we just need to move the decimal two places to the ...

    ok so for instance you have 5/8 all you need to do is divide 5 by 8. whic if you do the math you will get .625. Or even easier to use things that are easy to divide by so 6/10 ok so if you divide 6 by 10 all you have to do is move the decimal so you get .6. You use the same ...
