# Math Help - Derivative of e^(X+5)

1. ## Derivative of e^(X+5)

Hello,

How can I take the derivative of e^(x+5)?

is it just = e^(x+5)?

2. ## Re: Derivative of e^(X+5)

Yes - we have:

$e^x\cdot{e^5}$ and $e^5$ is just a constant.

3. ## Re: Derivative of e^(X+5)

You can also apply the chain rule:
$\frac{d(e^{x+5})}{dx}=e^{x+5}\cdot \frac{d(x+5)}{dx}=e^{x+5}$
