I have no idea how you managed to get that for f(x-1). To get f(x-1) you should have subbed (x-1) into wherever you saw an (x) in the original f(x).

That can't be the reason! It's probably down to resources

But I'll give a few papers a go

If those exam question's aren't feeling challenging, you can have a go at deriving the general result for the th derivative of a product of two functions, . And who knows, perhaps this result can help you with whatever else.
