$\displaystyle y = 6e^x$
Does the Power Rule apply? Or does $\displaystyle e^x$ stay the same? I tried with the Power Rule and it got confusing and messy.
you should probably do :
$\displaystyle \displaystyle (Ae^{ax})' = ?$
$\displaystyle \displaystyle (Ae^{-ax})' = ?$
$\displaystyle \displaystyle (x^Ae^{ax})' = ?$
$\displaystyle \displaystyle (A^xe^{ax})' = ?$
sorry about that ... del this post (#9) please
Given the obvious background of the OP, the previous two replies are less than helpful. Post #5 is all that is required for the OP to understand at this point in time. Product rules etc. are not appropriate for this thread as it will just confuse the OP.
I do use the textbook as well as my notes. It's not as easy as that for someone who has never studied calculus before. I came here for help, not for a scolding. Is this not called "Math Help Forum"? If I have the wrong impression of what this site is for and my presence is bugging other users just say so and I'll leave. There's no need to be so insulting when you know nothing about the situation mr fantastic.
I've gotten all that I needed from this thread. Thanks.
When someone says
then I don't think it's unreasonable to say thatYep, that pretty much explains my class - homework problems on stuff we haven't been taught.
As for the "If" in my statement, it is not unknown for students to, unfairly, blame a teacher for their difficulties.your problem is with the teacher and I would suggest that you discuss the matter with him/her
