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

y=8^0.01x

Differentiates to: 0.01 ln8 x 8^0.01x

Using derive on a graphics calculator, the answer given is:

3x2^3x-200/100 ln2/25

Prove that the two equal each other using index and logarithm laws.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Ah, well, I've had plenty of attempts. I've no idea if any are on the right track, but I'm working backwards from the second equation and have tried to split the equation into three parts to simplify. Needless to say, it didn't work. I've also tried simplifying the top of the equation to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
