    To step through, we can look at the function 3x^2 + 5x + 10 as three functions added together

    d/d(3x^2)=6x d/dx 5x=5 d/dx(10)=0

    looks like you want derivative of the function with respect to x...therefore constants become 0...right check out uzma's work

    so, as uzma found a first response: \[6x + 5\]
