so the answer is s/b (should be) on lower right, no idea how they got there, anyone know where I went wrong, thanks?

The problem seems to be to take the derivative of , for which the correct solution is . That's e times in parentheses.

I don't follow your solution starting at the second line - it looks like it should be (not ), and I don't get the stuff in brackets at all.

The solution to this derivative is pretty straightforward - just use the chain rule and work from the outside in:

: the derivative of is , so use the chain rule

: bring out the constant e and cancel

: the derivative of is , so use the chain rule

: the derivative of is
