    constant times a constant = ?

    if i were to multiple a constant by a constant, would it just be a constant?

    for example:

    y = c1(c1e-x)
    y'= -c1e-x

    edit: i guess i should square it since it's the same constant.

    Yes, square it. You may give the constant another value, e.g.: c_2:=-c_1^2.
