This is one of the favorite function to take the derivatives of.

If you wish to find this derivative by the limit definition, then here is how we find it. First, we have to know the following property of

(Note: This means that the slope of

By the limit definition of the derivative, we have

by factoring out

by the property of

Hence, the derivative of
