    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? \[\frac{d}{dx}(x^{n})=nx^{x-1}\]

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

    right what about e^u?

    e^u which is e^7-10x

    • one year ago

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

    • one year ago
  32. cluo
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

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