Nobody can help you derive that formula for an induction motor since it is the formula for a synchronous motor. Try Googling, if that fails look in any textbook on electrical machine theory.

This formula is much too easy to require a "derivation." It's just a matter of counting poles as they go by, one per each half of a sine wave.
