Let f be a differentiable function such that


Let $f$ be a differentiable function such that $f(1)=2$ and $f^{\prime}(x)=f(x)$ for all $x \in R$. If $h(x)=f(f(x))$, then $h^{\prime}(1)$ is equal to :

  1. (1) $2 \mathrm{e}^{2}$

  2. (2) $4 \mathrm{e}$

  3. (3) $2 \mathrm{e}$

  4. (4) $4 \mathrm{e}^{2}$

Correct Option: , 2


Since, $\quad f^{\prime}(x)=f(x)$

Then, $\quad \frac{f^{\prime}(x)}{f(x)}=1$

$\Rightarrow \frac{f^{\prime}(x)}{f(x)}=d x \Rightarrow \frac{f^{\prime}(x)}{f(x)} \quad d x=\int d x$

$\Rightarrow \quad \ln |f(x)|=x+c$

$f(x)=\pm e^{x+c}$......(1)

Since, the given condition


From eq $^{\mathrm{n}}(1) \quad f(x)=e^{x+c}=e^{c} e^{x}$

Then, $f(1)=e^{c} \cdot e^{1}$

$\Rightarrow \quad 2=e^{c} \cdot e$

$\Rightarrow \quad \frac{2}{e}=e^{c}$

Then, from eqn (1)

$f(x)=\frac{2}{e} e^{x}$

$\Rightarrow \quad f^{\prime}(x)=\frac{2}{e} e^{x}$

Now $\quad h(x)=f(f(x))$

$\Rightarrow \quad h^{\prime}(x)=f^{\prime}(f(x)) \cdot f^{\prime}(x)$

$h^{\prime}(1)=f^{\prime}(2) \cdot f^{\prime}(1)=\frac{2}{e} e^{2} \cdot \frac{2}{e} \cdot e=4 e$
