Given that f is a function with the following properties;
i. f(Xsub1+Xsub2) = f(Xsub1)*f(Xsub2) far all Xsub1 and Xsub2
ii. f(x) = 1 = xg(x) where lim x->0 g(x) =1
Prove that f ' (x) = f(x)

7... or maybe 11...
7 + 11 = 7/11
mmmmmm.... slurpee

ok so y=x

:tonka: I could figure it out but I just got done doing 2 hours of math my brain hurts

I forgot how to do calculus . . . all my books and notes are sitting right next to me on in the book case, but I'm not digging it out. Sorry. You're on your own, just like I was lol.

Get the solution manual.

Maybe later I'll think about it, but not likely.

This is the last place you want to look for help on the internet. Search for calc proof on the internets.

that's an Inverse function proof. It's more like late AlgbII which is Pre calc.

actually you prove it using using the definition of a derivative, which is calc 1
i figured it out, at least i think i did,
first i solved for x in f(x)=1+xg(x) for x which is x = (f(x)-1)/g(x) then i took the x's in that equation and replaced them with h's
Then i modified the definition of a derivative
f ' (x) = lim h->0 ((f(x+h)-f(x))/h) => lim h->0 ((f(x)*f(h)-f(x))/h),
Then i replaced h in the denominator with
(f(h)-1)/g(h) making the whole equation look like this

lim h->0 ((f(x)*f(h)-f(x))/(f(h)-1)/g(h)
modify that a bit to become
(f(x)*f(h)-f(x))/(f(x)-1)*g(h)

as h ->0 the top turns to just -f(x)
and the bottom becomes -1
so thats -f(x)/-1 which is just f(x)
That means that f '(x) = f(x)
at least i think i did that right, anyone that knows about calc should tell me if it looks right.

proved that in the for the function with the properties given that f ' (x) = f(x), the properties are given in the beginning of the post
