1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

f(x)=xe TO THE POWER OF -ax

x E R

a > o

Show that f(x) has a local maximum and express this point's coordinates in terms of a.

3. The attempt at a solution

I think dy/dx = -axe TO THE POWER OF -ax

Correct?

I don't know where to go after this.
