How to differentiate 2x?
Differentiation is one of the most important concepts in the branch of mathematics called calculus. It has many applications, which include finding the slope of a curve at a point given.
Answer: The derivative of 2x is 2x \(log_e 2\).
Let's understand in detail.
We need to find the derivative of 2x.
Now, we know that derivative of ex is ex.
We can also write that derivative of ex as d/dx ex = ex.\(log_e e\)
Similarly, the derivative of ax where a is any constant is ax \(log_ea\).
So, d/dx (2x) = 2x \(log_e 2\).
