what is the equation for taking the derivitive of -x^2+x

just equation setup i don't need an answer from power rool

• calculus -

The derivative of -x^2 is -2x.
The derivative of x is 1.

Add the two terms.

In general, the derivative of any term that can be written
a*x^n, where a and n are constants, is
n*a*x^(n-1)
