# Find the derivative of the following functions (it is to be understood that a,b,c,d,p,q,r and s are fixed non-zero constants and m and n are integers): (x + a)

**Solution:**

The given function is f(x) = x + a

Its derivative is,

d/dx (f(x)) = d/dx (x+a)

= d/dx (x) + d/dx (a)

= 1 + 0 [using the derivative formula, d/dx (x^{n}) = n x^{n-1}]

= 1
