Find y' and y" if y = x^4*e^x
1 Answer | add yours
It is given that y = x^4*e^x
To find the derivatives use the product rule.
y' = 4x^3*e^x + x^4*e^x
=> (x^4 + 4x^3)*e^x
y'' = 12x^2*e^x + 4x^3*e^x + 4*x^3*e^x + x^4*e^x
=> (x^4 + 8x^3 + 12x^2)*e^x
The derivative y' = (x^4 + 4x^3)*e^x and y'' = (x^4 + 8x^3 + 12x^2)*e^x
