I have to concur -- it should be a 2x in there. Having published a handful of math books, I must say it is not unreasonable to assume it is a misprint. They happen relatively often in math publishing, because the vast majority of book proofreaders don't understand math at all, which is kind of sad.

Do note that you shouldn't leave y in your answer; instead substitute y = 2x^(2x) back in for it at the end

I just went ahead and registered after I posted the above solution, so you can direct comments and questions to me at this username.
