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)

    Great! I understand now that C0=f(a) c1=f'(a) c2=f"(a)/2 Now, If I am to find the parabolization of the equation x^2-x at x=2, then c0=x^2-x=2^2-2=2 c1=2x-1=2(2)-1=3 c2=2/2=1 So, the equation (taken from c0+c1(x-a)+c2(x-a)^2) is >> …
