    Oh to take the derivative, you use the product rule and chain rule together. The product is composed of two parts, one is x, and the other is e^(-2x). The e^(-2x) involves a chain rule, because the inside is -2x, where the outside is e. So by taking the derivative of y with respect to x, you get \[1e ^{-2x}+xe ^{-2x}*-2\]
