Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x) = x^6 • 7e^(7x) + e^(7x) • 6x^5 = e^(7x) (7x^6 + 6x^5) hope this help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok what does that do? how does that bring us closer to solving the problem. Pls just list the steps and how to do them for this problem and once I get it once I won't need help again. I will be your 2nd fan and give you medal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you have negative exponents you can bring them to the denominator and then they become positive so youll get y' = 8/x^2
