Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y + x^4*y^3 = 1028; Use implicit differentiation: dy/dx + (x^4 * 3y^2 *dy/dx + 4x^3 * y^3) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I used the chain rule to differentiate that x^4*y^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now just replace dy/dx by f'(x) and y by f(x), and then find the values at 2: f'(2) + (2^4 * 3 * [f(2)]^2 * f'(2) + 4*2^3 * [f(2)]^3) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Replace f(2) by 4, because f(2) = 4 and simplify a bit: f ' (2) + (16 * 3 * 4^2 * f ' (2) + 4 * 8 * 4^3) = 0 f ' ( 2 ) + 768 * f ' ( 2 ) + 2048 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so here we go: \[y + x^4 * y^3 = 1028\] \[dy/dx + x^4 * 3y^2 (dy/dx) + y^3 *4x^3 = 0\] \[dy/dx( 1 + x^4 * 3y^2 ) = y^3 * 4x^3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[dy/dx = (y^3*4x^3)/(1+x^4*3y^2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay now you know that f(2) is 4, therefore to find f' or dy/dx at x = 2, replace all ys by 4 and xs by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[dy/dx = (4^3 * 4*2^3) / (1 + 2^4 * 3* 4^2)\]
