    y is made up of a product function. Thus, 5x and e^(-kx) Hence, we are to use the product rule with the above separations

    so 5xe^-kx is 5x*e^-kx so (5)(e^-kx)+(5x)(-ke^-kx) = 5e^-kx - 5xke^-kx

    So \[y=5xe^\left( -kx \right)\] \[\frac{ dy }{ dx } = 5x \frac{ d }{ dx }(e^{-kx}) + e ^{-kx} \frac{ d }{ dx }(5x)\]
