We'll divide our study of the derivatives of exponential functions into two parts: where

the base is e, and where the base is something else.

1. Derivative of ex:

Explanation

We'll use the definition of derivative:

=

by factoring out ex

e=

by definition

Note the equivalence of these two forms by observing that in both

cases the exponent aproaches and the x-term within the parentheses

approaches 0.

Thus,

Substitutng this back in, we get:

by substitution

by subistitution

simplification

x

=e
