    You know that f(x) = 3x^2 + 1 so that f(x + \delta x) = 3(x + \delta x)^2 + 1. (i.e: wherever you see x, replace it with x + \delta x). Expand the square and write out all the terms.

    Coordinate of y when x = x is 3x2+1

    The question is asking you to replace x here with x+dx and expand to get this new y coordinate (y+dy) in terms of x and dx

    Please do not tag so many people at the same time.

    As you can see 3 separate people have gone through the effort of answering the same question and that is unnecessary time wasted.

    EDIT: KtA has now deleted his answer having seen 2 other people answer the question, which just wastes his time.

    As they said... plug this into the formula given for \frac{\mathrm{d}y}{\mathrm{d}x}.
