In Exercises 1-10, use the shortcut rules to mentally calculate the derivative of the given function. [HINT: See Example 1 and 2.] f ( x ) = 3 x − 1

To determine

To calculate: The derivative of function f(x)=3x1 with the help of the shortcut rules.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is f(x)=3x1.

Formula used:

Constant multiple rule, f(cx)=cf(x) where c is constant.

Derivative of a function f(x)=xn with the help of power rule is f(x)=nxn1.

Calculation:

Consider the function, f(x)=3x1
