TD!
And the question is, find the derivative?
Do you know the different rules and if so, what is the problem?

I do not understand the first two problems, they are dreadfully ambigous.

Given,
$6x^5-4x^3+x^2$
You need to find, (the derivative)
$(6x^5-4x^3+x^2)'$
thus, by the sum-rule,
$(6x^5)'-(4x^3)'+(x^2)'$
thus, by the constant-multiple rule,
$6(x^5)'-4(x^3)'+(x^2)'$
thus, by the power-rule,
$6(5x^4)-4(3x^2)+(2x)$
thus, after some algebra,
$30x^4-12x^2+2x$
