What standard methods have you covered in class?

If you've been through the standard rules for differentiation, then all of these should be straighforward!

For the first one, you should know that can be written as . In order to differentiate an equation in C1, you need to get all terms to be x to the power of something. Some of these you should be able to expand or rearrange to get in this form. Then just differentiate using what you should have been taught in class.

Where applicable, use the rules of indices to make life easier, and then just do what you'd normally do to differentiate. If you're not sure how to do that you can ask, or read your textbook. We can't do your homework for you!

then dy/dx = anx to the power 1 minus 1

so i know x² = 2x

but i don't know what to do when there is a 3 above the x²

well i know if y= ax to the power n (where a is a constant)

then dy/dx = anx to the power 1 minus 1

so i know x² = 2x

but i don't know what to do when there is a 3 above the x²

Remember that x^-n = 1/x^n

Now you can apply your "standard rule" for differentiation.

Follow a similar process for all the others.

You need to begin by getting rid of the fraction

Remember that x^-n = 1/x^n

Once you get x^something. Multiply the coefficient of x by the power of x, then drop the power by one. E.g. X^2 + 2x + 6 becomes 2x + 2

i never learnt that above rule before, can you write it in words (i don't understand ^ means)

You said this was revision - "revision" means "seeing again" i.e. there should be nothing unfamiliar in all this for you!

You've gone wrong in 2 places if that's the case.

It might be a good idea to talk to your Maths teacher in the morning about this exercise as you don't seem to have covered some of the basic rules properly in class
