    product rule for this one use \[(fg)'=f'g+g'f\] with \(f(x)=x^8,f'(x)=8x^7,g(x)=e^x,g'(x)=e^x\)

    that answer is good for f'(x).

    \(\large f'(x) = 8x^7e^x + x^8e^x\) just take the derivative of each term in the sum above using product rule

    that is the derivative of the first term, but not f''(x) yet.

    f''(x) = ((56x^6)(e^x)+(8x^7)(e^x))+((8x^7)(e^x)+(8x^7)(e^x))

    good except for the last term in you answer \[f''(x) = 56^6e^x + 8x^7e^x + 8x^7e^x + x^8e^x\]

    sorry, missed an x :) \[f''(x) = 56x^6e^x + 8x^7e^x + 8x^7e^x + x^8e^x\]

    maybe you also need to factor it??? \[f''(x) = 56x^6e^x + 16x^7e^x + x^8e^x\] \[GCF = x^6e^x\]
