I really tried many times but could not this answer >_<
Any help? Thank you

Expand the brackets and differentiate each term individually (hint: 20 differentiated disappears so all you're actually differentiating is -20e^-0.2t)

20(1-e^-0.2t) = 20-20e^-0.2t. differentiating with respect to t. use the chain rule. differential of e^t = e^t. so differential of e^-0.2t = e^-0.2t x -0.2 (differential of -0.2t). therefore differential of 20-20e^-0.2t = -20e^-0.2t x -0.2 = 4e^-0.2t. Then sub t=2 into the result.
