Proofs of Derivatives of Ln(x) and e6x
In this video, Sal takes on the challenge of proving both the derivative of ln x = 1/x and of ex = ex, showing that no circular logic is used in the proof. It contains a clearer version of both proofs shown in the videos titled, _Proof d/dx e^x = e^x” and _Proof: d/dx (ln x) = 1/x.”
