I understand that the derivative of a constant is zero, but I don't understand when you use that zero to multiply or divide in a problem, and when you just ignore that zero.

For example x^2/3

Would that be zero? or 2x?

Because I know in some problems you just ignore the constant when it is alone, but I'm not sure about when it is a variable.

Help is appreciated, I have a test tomorrow

Thanks
