    The easiest way to do this is to use implicit differentiation on it as it stands. You differentiate using the normal rules but you treat y as an unknown function of x. This means f(y) differentates to f '(y)*(dy/dx) by the chain rule. xy + x + y^2 = 6 First implicit differentiation gives [1*y + x*1*(dy/dx)] + 1 + 2y*(dy/dx) = 0 .....[from xy].....................[from y^2] You can rearrange this to give dy/dx = (function of x and y) Second implicit differentiation gives dy/dx + [1*(dy/dx) + x*(d2y/dx2)] + [2*(dy/dx)*(dy/dx) + 2y*(d2y/dx2)] = 0 ...................[from x*(dy/dx)]......................[from 2y*(dy/dx)] Now you replace each dy/dx by its function of x and y found above. Then rearrange it to give d2y/dx2 = (function of x and y).
