okay so for this question i understand you first find dy/dx which i got to be lnx+1 and then i would’ve substituted e as the x coordinate bc we have no other coordinates so that i could use the negative reciprocal as the gradient when working out the equation of a line for l but the mark scheme some how finds the gradient of the curve as 2 so the gradient of the line as -1/2

i just realised is it because e is e as in exponential so ln(e) is 1 and 1+1 is 2? but how was i supposed to know it was exponential e bc is that not meant to have a power or anything 😭😭😭😭

dy(e)/dx = ln(e)+1 = 2

and its as in the mark scheme.

Even if you'd had a temporary brain fade and forgotten that ln e = 1, the question pretty much tells you that because P is the point (e, e) and since y = xlnx, then at the point P you would need e = elne so you would be forced to have ln e = 1
