It was the function of Lex's legal team and C 1/2 to the one minus expert Well, in C, we can take the derivative of this. We'll just have natural logs of 1/2 assed we've seen important last year. That's two to the negative one natural so we can take that negative one out in front. So we get natural. Love it too. So it's natural log of the base. Then we need Teoh. Multiply it by that very same 1/2. So the one minus six part and now chain wrong. There is a negative X over there, so by by a negative one. So we see that our negatives cancel out and we just end up What natural log on to times 1/2 1 minus X awesome.
