y = x^2 / 3x - 1?

Thank you fo any help assistance!

i suppose for the first problem you meant ?

in that case, expand the brackets and then use the power rule: (we could use the product rule, but i like this way more)

for the second question i assume you meant (use parentheses!)

in that case, we would use the quotient rule:
