hi n1corponic
Thank you for everything!!!!!!! bob bundy!!!!!! plus congrats to owner..admins..moderators etc. for this great site! cheers!
The square bracket means include the endpoint. It seems I am assuming too much. If it doesn't say strictly, I concede the argument.
wow! they are the same indeed! I feel sooooo much better now!
hi n1corponic But the book shouldn't be saying less than and equal to because the graph has a turning point when = so dy/dx = 0 So the value of the function isn't getting bigger. Bob
Your approach seems wonderful!!! and according to me correct.. but why does the book i have give another..but very similar answer?.. it says x<or=1/2*ln3 Is it the same but i'm missing smth??
Hi;
My post 4 may have been missed as bobbym and I posted together.
Hi bobbym! I took a look at the graph in wolframalpha or smth..but it won't help on my future exams.. if i do not know how to find the answer on my own.
OK, here we go. e^x is always positive so you need log base e is an increasing function so the inequality holds if you take logs Graph below. Bob

hi n1corponic
...how we find the interval where the function e^xe^(3x) is increasing... the derivative is e^x[1  3e^(2x)]. I have the answer but I feel lost..
