    just the 1/x, the square is on the "outside"

    therefore its 2 over x

    put it all together. e^ln x ^2 * 2ln x * 1/x and clean it up.

    \[=(2\log^2_{x} logx)/x\] I guess....

    Mmmm.... not so sure. Try this: we know d/dx(e^x) = e^x So d/dx(e^(lnx)^2) = e^(lnx)^2 times d/dx(lnx)^2 = e^(lnx)^2 times 2lnx times d/dx(lnx) = e^(lnx)^2 times 2lnx times (1/x)
