I have an equation in the form y=10^x, i have an error in x, dx. I am unsure how to find the associated error in y. dy=10^dx gives to small an error and dy=x-dx doesn't seem logical as a smaller error in x gives a bigger error in y.
(The actual equation is d=10^((m(v)-M(v)+5)/5), i have already have errors for m(v) and M(v) and have combined them by using sqrt(dM(v)^2+dm(v)^2), the equation is used for calculating cosmoligical distances).
