Okay, but what kind of help do you want? You have several problems that ask you to find first and second derivatives of polynomials. What do you know about derivatives? Must you use the definition of derivative (often phrased as "from first principles"? Do you know the "laws of derivatives", such as the product rule or the power rule?
