    We should only deal with what is actually posted.
    If we begin to guess as to what the question might mean, then we do a real disservice.
    Because, the question may well mean actually what it says, which I suspect is the case here.

    Re: So Lost ? Derivative of Exponential and Trig Functions.

    I totally agree with my colleagues, it does not make sense, function with independent variable x and derivative wrt t. The question is definitely wrong. Either the derivative should be wrt t or the independent variable should be x.
