Homework Help: Differentiate e.

  1. Oct 30, 2011 #1
    f(x)= xe^(2x)

    So I applied the product rule
    (f • g) = x • e(^2x) + e^(2x) • 1
    = xe^(2x) + e^(2x)
    =2xe^(2x)

    And got this as my final answer.

    Would I need to use chain rule? Did I do this correctly?

    You forgot to take the derivative of e^(2x)
