### Logarithmic and Exponential Function Derivatives

- You should memorize these results – they are important!
- One type of problem here simply incorporates logarithmic and exponential functions into differentiation problems involving, for example, the Chain Rule.
- You can use the derivative of the exponential function to derive the derivative of the logarithmic function.
- In this topic you may also work on problems involving the technique of logarithmic differentiation.

Thyis is basic, but what about a problem like

f(x) = log_5(xe^x)

this doesnt go in depth enough for combinations like this>..
