How do you differentiate f(x)=arctan(e^5x)
If it's w.r.t . x then use the chain rule e.g. u= e^(5x)
I did something like,
I don't think that is right though, I'm pretty confused
How did you get e-5x in the numerator? The derivative of e5x is 5e5x. That is what you should be multiplying by.
I thought since e^5x is in the denominator that it is equal to e^-5x

According to the differentiator you should have got (e^5)/[(e^10)*(x^2)+1].
ok thanks guys
