Hey, I'm reviewing calculus (its been sometime since I took it) and I'm trying to do some examples from the book but I'm pretty sure I'm doing it wrong.
Heres the first one:

Heres the first one:
you either have to use the chain rule here, or distribute the power and use the product rule.
you seem to be attempting the chain rule. so i will ask you this, what is the derivative of $\displaystyle te^{-2t}$
no. $\displaystyle f(t) = t$ is one function, $\displaystyle g(t) = e^{-2t}$ is the other.
making $\displaystyle -2t$ as one function makes no sense, right? since you are saying there is some power without a base just floating around magically
