Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well first off, the product rule. If you have two function multiplied together (in this case: x and sin(Bx)) then you apply: \[\frac{d}{dx}f(x)*g(x)=f'(x)g(x)+f(x)g'(x)\] As for the chain rule, when you apply it to sin(Bx) you get: \[\frac{d}{dx}\sin( \beta x)=\beta \cos(\beta x)\] And you also know that: \[\frac{d}{dx}(af(x))=a \frac{d}{dx}f(x)\] So applying all these you get: \[y'=\frac{d}{dx}(e \alpha x \sin(\beta x))=e \alpha \frac{d}{dx}x \sin (\beta x)=e \alpha \left[ \frac{d}{dx}(x)\sin(\beta x)+x \frac{d}{dx}\sin(\beta x)\right]\] \[=e \alpha \left[ \sin(\beta x) + \beta x \cos(\beta x)\right]\] Now apply those rules again to get y''.
