I am currently learning calculus and just had my lecture on the chain rule.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I noticed that we haven't learned how to take the derivative of a function like 2^2+x or 3^4+x.

Any example works.. Is this something I will learn later as I progress through calculus or what?
