```In terms of pure functions, just continue as for y[x] i.e.

y[0.5] /. sol
Out= {2.}
D[y[x] /. sol, x] /. x -> 0.5
Out= {4.00004}

(aesthetically nicer to use sol[] or First[sol] to get rid of those pesky
brackets :)

Another way is to first convert the solution to a regular expression (though
this assigns y and it needs to be cleared before re-using it later)

y[x_]=y[x]/.sol
Out= InterpolatingFunction[{{0.,3.}},<>][x]

You can now apply Plot, D etc to y[x] as you usually do

dy[x_]=D[y[x],x]
Out= InterpolatingFunction[{{0.,3.}},<>][x]

dy[0.5]
Out= {4.00004}

Plot[{y[x], dy[x]}, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Yellow, Black}]
