here we have capital F of X, which is a composite function with little F as the outside function and eat of the X as the inside function. So it's derivative. Using the chain rule would be the derivative of the outside F prime of E to the X Times, the derivative of the inside E to the X. And then we have capital G of X, also a composite function. It's outside function is the each of the X function and it's inside. Function is f of X, so it's derivative would be the derivative of the outside e to the f of x times, the derivative of the inside F prime of X.
