Question
Let f(x)=−x^4+x^3−3x^2−2x+4. What is d/dxf(x)

Answer
Hi Satara,
d/dx is an operator which when applied to a function f(x) finds the derivative. So, d/dx[f(x)] simply refers to the first derivative of f(x), also written as f'(x).
Now, for f(x) = −x^4 + x^3 − 3x^2 − 2x + 4
f'(x) = -4x^3 + 3x^2 - 6x - 2
