(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Can you help me simplify the following equation: -e^((-1/2)*x^2)*(x^2-1)+2*e^((-1/2)*x^2)*x.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I've been guessing that you can combine the e^((-1/2)*x^2) components and thus end up with (x^2-1)x+e^((-1/2)*x^2)*x. Please let me know. Thanks.
