\frac{d}{dx}a=0, for some constant a.

Prerequisites

The limit definition of the derivative, f'(x)=\lim_{h \to 0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}

Proof

Let f(x) = a for some constant a. From the limit definition of the derivative:

f'(x)=\lim_{h \to 0}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}
f'(x)=\lim_{h \to 0}\frac{a-a}{h}
f'(x)=0
