1. ## derivative

e^((3q+4)/(830))*(3(830))/(830^2)

how do i find the derivative of this equation?
i think i have to use the chain rule......although im not sure how....

I'm looking at your syntax, and the best interpretation I can give is that you have a simple exponential function with a mess of constants.

after a small bit up clean up, it looks like ...

$\displaystyle e^{\frac{3q+4}{830}} \cdot \frac{3}{830}$

is this the expression you intend to differentiate w/r to $\displaystyle q$ ?

$\displaystyle f=\frac{3*830}{830^2}e^{\frac{3q+4}{830}}$
Remember the rule for evaluating derivatives of exponential functions. $\displaystyle \frac{d}{dx}(a^u)=a^u*du*ln(a)$

Can you do it now?
