it is the derivative of \)2^x\) at $$x=0$$

2. anonymous

if you got that far

3. theopenstudyowl

$\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} (2^x-1)/x$

L'hopital's rule

oh heck no

6. anonymous

i mean sure you can, but this is the derivative of $$f(x)=2^x$$ at $$x=0$$ i.e. it is $$f'(0)$$

7. anonymous

you know what the derivative of $$y=2^x$$ is?

Hint: $\frac{ d }{ dx } a^x = a^x lnx$
