Hey folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for a little guidance in solving the derivative y'(x)of the following function containing an absolute in the exponent:

[tex]y(x)=e^{a|x|}[/tex]

I'm pretty sure its not as simple as

[tex]y'(x)=a e^{a|x|}[/tex]

Any suggestions??
