### Oscillating Spring & Rates of change

How to solve? Are they asking for: instantaneous rate of change: $\frac{d}{dt}h(t)=2.5$ and solve for value of $t$ or when $\frac{d}{dt}h(t_1)$ where $t_1$ is when $h(t)=2.5$ but both methods ...

### Differentiate the following functions

Let $$y(x)= 4 x^3 e^{2x},$$ then $$y'(x) = 4 \times 3 \, x^2 e^{2x} + 4 \, x^3 \times 2 e^{2x} = 12 \, x^2 e^{2x} + 8 \, x^3 e^{2x}$$ Does this look correct?
