#### Explanation:

So, we must use the fact that the derivative of sums equals the sum of derivatives.

in this case

Since 6 is a constant its derivative is zero. This is because the derivative of any constant is zero.

So,

Next we can use the Power rule

and the fact that a derivative times a constant equals constant times derivative

In this case

So

and

Then we put it together and get
