I believe you. But PF guidelines require you post your own attempt before assistance is allowwed.
So: what are we talking about ? What is a fluxion a la Newton (sounds like a recipe :smile: ) and how does one calculate it ?

Thanks for your belief :)
A fluxion of the quantity x (which is dependent on time) is the speed at which speed increases.

Essentially it seems to be the derivative.
