    Thanks
    Yes, that's correct. In general, we see that \frac{\,d}{\,dx}\left[ae^x\right]=a\frac{\,d}{\,dx}\left[e^x\right]=ae^x, where a is a constant.

    ever heard of a joke when a guy says to the other:
    "I'm gonna derive you like a function!"
    And the other one says:
    "You can't derive me because im e^x."

    :P
