    a) Just plug in 1 for the numerator and g(x) for the denominator in the quotient rule. b) \[ -{\frac {1+k{{\rm e}^{s}}}{ \left( s+k{{\rm e}^{s}} \right) ^{2}}} \] assuming y is a function of s. c) Follows from \[ x^{-n} = \frac{1}{x^n} \] and \[ \frac{d}{dx} x^n = nx^{n-1} \]

    is the quotient rule the same thing as the reciprocal part b?

    What do you mean? The reciprocal rule is a special case of the quotient rule. You can use either one for part b, but it's easier to use the reciprocal rule.

    What is your question? g is not just a variable, it's a function.

    You need to differentiate\[ \Large s+k\cdot e^s \] with respect to s.

    The derivative of a sum is the sum of derivatives, so differentiate s and then differentiate k*e^s.

    k does not depend on s, so you can just leave it unchanged
