I think I finally figured out derivitaves, but not sure...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The derivative/differential of x in

x is 1

3x + 5 is 3

5x^2 - 2 is 10

And breaking down a quadratic thus

3x^5 + 2x^3 + 5x - 1

The first derivative is 15x^4 + 6x^2

The second derivative is 60x^3 + 12x

Third 180x^2

Fourth 360x

And final 360.
