1. ## [SOLVED] Differentiate

I want to differentiate this $2e^{2x}(Acos(x)-Bsin(x))+e^{2x}(-Asin(x)+Bcos(x))$

I have put the a terms together to make it simpler am i right in doing so?

$Ae^{2x}(2cos(x) - sin(x)))+ Be^{2x}(2sin(x) + cos(x))$

I need to differentiate this when I try it got really messy and could not complete it.

Take out a common factor of $e^{2x}$ and you get

$f(x) = e^{2x}(2A\cos{x} - 2B\sin{x} - A\sin{x} + B\cos{x})$

$f(x) = e^{2x}[(2A + B)\cos{x} - (A + 2B)\sin{x}]$

Now differentiate using the product rule

$f'(x) = 2e^{2x}[(2A + B)\cos{x} - (A + 2B)\sin{x}] - e^{2x}[(2A + B)\sin{x} + (A + 2B)\cos{x}]$.

for the first part: $2e^{2x}[(2A + B)\cos{x} - (A + 2B)\sin{x}]$

Would u= $2e^{2x}$ and v= $cos{x} - sin{x}$

No. Let $u = e^{2x}$ and $v =$ everything in the square brackets.

So the derivative is $\frac{du}{dx}\times v + u\times\frac{dv}{dx}$.

5. I differentiated the first part $2e^{2x}[(2A + B)\cos{x} - (A + 2B)\sin{x}]$

and got $2e^{2x}[(2A+B)cos(x)-(A+2B)sin(x)]-2e^{2x}[(2A+B)sin(x)+(A+2B)cos(x)]$

is this correct? then i differentiate the other part and put them together?

I've already given you the solution and answer.
