    i think we r suppose to use the u substitution method. no the answer is -10e^7-10x

    Are you familiar with the power rule and that any derivative of a constant will equal zero? \[\frac{d}{dx}(x^{n})=nx^{x-1}\]

    the first one should be e^(7 - 10x)

    You can pretend its e^u and u = 7-10x

    so what is the derivative of e^x?

  28. ammu123
    • 2 years ago

    e^x

    right what about e^u?

  30. ammu123
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    e^u which is e^7-10x

  31. cluo
    • 2 years ago

    right now you have to use the chain rule by taking du/dx and multiply to e^u

  32. cluo
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so du/dx * e^u is the answer.

    ok i think i got it! :)
