I need help figuring this out. I know that the derivative of e^5x is 5e^x but I'm not sure what to do when x is raised to a power or when there is another variable involved, such as y. Once again here is what I need to find: Derivative of e^(-(1/3)x^2-(1/5)y^4)

And if you guys know of a way that I can display that in a clearer way such as with some type of symbol tool please let me know for future posts. To make that clearer I want to find the derivative of e raised to the power of (negative one-third x^2 minus one-fifth y^4). Also, if you know of a site that fully explains the derivatives of e and includes explanations to the above problem let me know. Thanks.
