Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By using the chain rule we get\[P'(t)=2e^{(2e)^{2t}}*2e^{2t}*2\] It's a tedious one, but if you take it slow and break it down and it's not too bad. Chain rules within chain rules are always annoying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If the exponent is `really` (2t)^(2t), then this one is going to be be a lil more frustrating since the 2 is included lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would we make a substitution? \[u=2e ^{2t}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\large\rm y=a^x\]Recall that for differentiating exponentials:\[\large\rm y'=a^x(\ln a)\]So then,\[\large\rm \frac{d}{dt}(2e)^{2t}=(2e)^{2t}\cdot \ln(2e)\cdot (2)\]Oh but then log of 2e isn't defined... Yah having a negative base is uhh... no bueno :U hmm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then Chris's derivative is correct :) We just gotta be careful with the brackets.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2P(t)=2*e^(2e^(2t)) P'(t)=2e(2e^(2t))*(2)e^(2t)*2 Try that maybe? :d Do you only get a limited number of "guesses"?
