Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 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).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, (x^2)y + x(y^2) = 6 d/dx[(x^2)y + x(y^2)] = d/dx (6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then how did you get 2xy then dy/dx x^2?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or do you get dy/dx and all that stuff in parenthasis because you're finding the d/dx of y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ dy }{ dx }[(x^2)y + x(y^2)] =\frac{ dy }{ dx }6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[dy/dx(x^2)+2y(dy/dx)x = y^22xy\]

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[dy/dx(x^2+2xy)=y^22xy\]

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So,\[\frac{ dy }{ dx }=\frac{ (y^2+2xy)}{x^2+2xy }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do you know which one to put dy/dx with

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like when we had x^2y and got dy/dx(x^2) + 2xy

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why'd we put dy/dx with x^2 and not 2xy?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay but then which one do i put the dy/dx with?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like the next problem is y2 = (x+1)/(x1)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would i do 2y (dy/dx) = vdu  udv/v^2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so dy/dx2y = (x+1)(1)  (x1)(1) / (x1)^2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right now i'm working on y^2 = x1/x+1

anonymous
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i take dy/dx y^2 = (x+1)(1)  (x1)(1) / (x+1)^2 right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the left side will equal 2y when i take dy/dx of it

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2y dy/dx = [(x+1)(x1)] /(x+1)^2 \]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you keep dy/dx with the y on the left

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but why? cause i had gotten that far, i just didn't know which side to leave dy/dx with?
