l used the product rule and got the same answer as you, but the answer is suppose to be

is there a way to get this - Mar 19th 2009, 03:47 PMHallsofIvy
e^(i*pi) gave you . Now factor out an additional : so .

how do you factor out x^(e-1) when there is only one x^(e-1), the other is x^e ======>

wouldn't it have to be in order to write it as

so how do you make (which is equal to ) into in order to write it as the answer given - Mar 20th 2009, 04:33 AMstapel
