Make a conjecture about the nth derivative of the function f(x)=e^(ax). This conjecture should be written as a self contained proposition including an appropriate quantifier.

That does this last sentence mean?

I understand what is happening with the function. It is the last sentence I am not sure what they are asking for.

"Appropriate quantifier": is your statement true for

**all**a and x or do there**exist**some values of a and/or x for which it is true?
