Are you really sure that this is a derivative question? Is a function of x?
I think it might be a mistake or I'm supposed to solve for x. I still don't get the answer. Apparently a=-3 and b=1
If you were supposed to solve for then (using quadratic formula), else the question doesn't make any sense. If you were supposed to find and ,there would be 2 equations.
Ah, thanks.
... also we can differentiate both L.H.S and R.H.S if and only if is a function of .
