    Exponantial Equation question

    Hello everyone,
    I have a question that I faced with while working on an mining issue.
    I got an equation like : y =ae^bx and I should make it like y = λe^λx.
    so in first equation a and b is more likely not equal but I should make them equal to make my anylisis more appropriate so it should be like second formula.
    thanks for future.

    With y= ae^{bx}, let c= a/b. Then y/c=(a/c)e^{bx}= a(b/a)e^{bx}= be^{bx} which is y'= be^{bx} with y'= y/c= by/a

    Thank you for your help HallsofIvy but I don't understand derivative part. Which value of derivative was taken. Is it d/da operation?
