Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is referred to as the power rule..multiply the coefficient by the exponent and then subtract one from the exponent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. okay let y = 4^x + 6 lny = xln4 + ln6 1/y(dy/dx) = ln4 cross multiply.... dy/dx = yln4 substitute... dy/dx = (4^x + 6) ln4 i don't know if that can be simplified further but i think that's simplified already
