    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 ...

     <br />
e^{\frac{3q+4}{830}} \cdot \frac{3}{830}<br />

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

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

    Can you do it now?
