## tiffanymak1996 2 years ago find, from first principles, the derivative of y= (sinx)(e^x)

$\frac{ dy }{ dx }= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{e ^{x+h} \sin(x+h) - e^{x} sinx}{h}$

Maybe try an angle sum identity for sin(x+h), and for e^{x+h}, you add the exponents when multiplying powers of the same base. See if you can use that to factor things out.

i did the question till, $\lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{e^x e^h sinx \cosh + e^x e^h cosxsinh -e^xsinx}{h}$ but i can't eliminate the terms
