Answer

\[{y^,} = \frac{{x{e^x} + x{e^{ - x}} - {e^x} + {e^{ - x}}}}{{{x^2}}}\]

Work Step by Step

\[\begin{gathered} y = \frac{{{e^x} - {e^{ - x}}}}{x} \hfill \\ Differentiate\,\,using\,\,the\,\,quotient\,\,rule \hfill \\ \,\,{\left[ {\frac{u}{v}} \right]^,} = \frac{{v{u^,} - u{v^,}}}{{{v^2}}} \hfill \\ Then \hfill \\ {y^,} = \frac{{x\,{{\left( {{e^x} - {e^{ - x}}} \right)}^,}\,\left( {{e^x} - {e^{ - x}}} \right)\,{{\left( x \right)}^,}}}{{\,{{\left( x \right)}^2}}} \hfill \\ Compute\,\,the\,\,derivatives \hfill \\ {y^,} = \frac{{x\,\left( {{e^x} + {e^{ - x}}} \right) - \,\left( {{e^x} - {e^{ - x}}} \right)\,\left( 1 \right)}}{{{x^2}}} \hfill \\ Multiply \hfill \\ {y^,} = \frac{{x{e^x} + x{e^{ - x}} - {e^x} + {e^{ - x}}}}{{{x^2}}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]
