For higher math classes, its trivial to say that if y=x, then y'=1. Higher level textbooks also don't review a lot of the basics that are easy to forget.

So if you have an equation that looks like y=x(t), then even if dy/dt might be some complicated looking function in t, dy/dx is still just =1 right?

yep: it is.
