I need to find the derivative of this function algebraically: y = (x – 1)^3 + 2
Thank-you in advance,

Do you mean by using the definition?
Can you do this one ?
How about this one ?
The question says:
Consider the graph of y= (x-1)^3 +2
Use your rules of differentiation to find the derivative y' algebraically.
I don't really understand it.
First, letís write it as .
Then we have,
Now you do the algebra.
Thanks, that's already helped quite a bit.
Though I think I'm doing something wrong when I expand it:
(x^3 + h^3 + 3xh + 3xh -1^3 +2) - (x^3 -1^3 +2)
You need a great deal of practice on simple algebra.
