this problem. We want to compare what happens to the derivative of E to the acts to the derivative of B to the acts were B s a constant other than me Recall that the derivative formula for E to the X is just e to the axe. The derivative If the base is anything except e starts out the same way we keep the base to the power axe. But then at the end, we have to multiply the answer by the natural log of the base.
