    E usually stands for:

    multiplied by (10 to the power of *)

    i.e, 3E-14 = 3*10^(-14)

    its called writing in "standard form"

    y = 3E-148e0.1708x

    is the same as

    y = 3*(10)^-148 e0.1708x

    the slope (derivative) would be

    y'=0.5124*(10)^-148 e0.1708x

    or

    y'=0.5124E-148e0.1708x
