    Ok It took me a while to understand your questions so here's how I saw them: a. \[f(x)=e^{7-10x}\] \[f'(x) = e ^{7-10x}\times \frac{ d(7-10x) }{ dx }\] (Chain Rule) Derivative of 7 - 10x = -10 so it comes out to the desired answer. b. Ok for this, I just took the 8 out, because it makes it much easier to look at. \[y=xe^{x}-e^{x}\] Derivative of e^x is simply e^x. Derivative of \[xe^{x}\] = \[e^{x}+xe^{x}\] (Product Rule) the e^x's cancel out and we are left with the desired answer.

    C. \[f(x) = (x^{2}-2x+4)e^{x}\] Uhh this is also product rule so you get: \[(2x-2)e^{x}+e^{x}(x^{2}-2x+4)\] Expanding this out you get:\[2xe^{x}-2e^{x} + e^{x}x^{2}-e^{x}2x + 4e^{x}\] Terms cancel and you are then left with the desired answer.
