$\frac{d}{dx}\left[{a}^{u}\right]=\left(\mathrm{ln}a\right){a}^{u}\ast \frac{du}{dx}$ (this is the differentiating formula you will need for this problem)
a=17
u=x
$\frac{du}{dx}=1$
$\frac{d}{dx}\left[{17}^{x}\right]=\left(\mathrm{ln}17\right){17}^{x}\left(1\right)=\left(\mathrm{ln}17\right){17}^{x}$

For y = 17
dy/dx = 0
For $y={17}^{x}$ use logarithmic differentiation:
$\mathrm{ln}\left(y\right)=x\mathrm{ln}\left(17\right)$
${y}^{\prime }/y=\mathrm{ln}\left(17\right)$
${y}^{\prime }=\mathrm{ln}\left(17\right)\ast y$
${y}^{\prime }=\mathrm{ln}\left(17\right)\ast {17}^{x}$
