(e^3x)^2 = ? watch

1. Could someone tell me what the answer is to the below.

(e^3x)^2

It is with respect to the denominator using the Quotient Rule.
2. e^6x
3. index law

multiplying 2 things two a power - add the indices

i.e.

(e^3x)(e^3x) = e^(3x+3x)=e^6x
4. there is no denominator in what u have written

and if its the derivative u want seeing as u mention the quotient rule - then what u have to do is expand the square to get e^6x and then use the chain rule

therefore dy/dx = 6e^6x
5. I you
6. lets not get carried away
7. lol - hot love on the hot love maths forum
