Not really???

Answer is 6x

#### Explanation:

The thing with differentiating is that it is so easy if you know how to do it.

An equation like a polynomial is easy since if there is an exponent and you times it with the constant infront of the x.

The most that you will be doing on your calculator is (2x3) and then (2-1)

The final answer for this equation is 6x

since the 12 is a constant, that becomes 0
