    For a function f(x,y)=ye^{2x},

    \frac{\partial}{\partial y}ye^{2x}=e^{2x}

    Since the x is considered as a constant for the purpose of the differentiation.

    Could you please tell me if this is correct?

    For the partial derivative with respect to x xe^yx, would it be xe^yx(e^yx)(y)+e^yx(1)?

    Thank you very much
