Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Have you learned implicit differentiation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It's easy! Let me explain it to you in simple terms without getting wordy. If x and y are on the same side of the equal sign, then we say the function is written implicitly, and call it an implicit function. To find the derivative of an implicit function, take the derivative as you normally would but every time you differentiate y, multiply by dy/dx. Then solve for dy/dx. Example: x² + y³ = 5 2x + 3y²(dy/dx) = 0 3y²(dy/dx) = 2x dy/dx = 2x/3y² Understand @monroe17 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got it :) and when you have both x and y on each side you move the y terms to the left? and x on the right then divide?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes you isolate dy/dx and then solve for dy/dx. Good, you got it!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for instance with my problem i would subtract 6x from both sides and it ends up on the right side of the equal sign. Then 4 is substracted to the right side.. getting sec^2(x)6x/2e^(2y)4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yay, gosh finally.. imma try it for my next problem and see if i get it right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure! I'll be on line for another hour or so, hence if you need anything, let me know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1opps. I came to a problem.. ;/ my next question is 5y^2=3x^(2)y+e^(x) i did.. 10y(dy/dx)=6x(dy/dx)+e^(x) dy/dx(10y*y)=6x+e^(x) dy/dx=6x+e^(x)/10y*y and that's wrong.. what was my mistake??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Woops! When you took the derivative of the right side, it looks like you didn't apply the product rule on the 3x^2y term! :O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exactly as @zepdrix said!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@monroe17 remember you only multiply by dy/dx when you take the derivative of y, not every time you write y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got.. 10y(dy/dx)=3x^2+6x*y+e^(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Example: x² + 2xy  4 = 6y 2x + 2y + 2x(dy/dx) = 6(dy/dx) Do you see what I did there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how do i know which term goes to which side for this problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[5y ^{2} = 3x ^{2}y + e ^{x}\] \[10 y \frac{ dy }{ dx} = 3x ^{2 }\frac{ dy }{ dx } + 6xy + e ^{x}\] \[\frac{ dy }{ dx } = \frac{ 6xy + e ^{x} }{ 10y  3x }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You know the product rule for derivatives, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@Eda2012 I am trying to teach her. I do not appreciate you just posting the solution. How is she supposed to learn to solve problems independently if you just give her the answers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the product rule is f(x)g'(x)+g(x)f'(x) right?

calculusfunctions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Correct! Thus if you have a term of 3x²y for example, then your f = 3x² and g = y. And you multiply by dy/dx iff you differentiate y. Understand?

calculusfunctions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If f = 3x² and g = y, then f ' = 6x and g' = dy/dx Do you see?

monroe17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so.. 10y(dy/dx)=3x^2(dy/dx)+y(6x)+e^(x) 10y(dy/dx)=3x^(2)+6xy+e^(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why does 3x^2 go to the left side? I though you make all x to one side and y's the other?

calculusfunctions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(fg)' = fg' + gf' (3x²y)' = 3x²(dy/dx) + 6xy Do you see your mistake when you differentiated 3x²y on the right side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@Eda2012 so you show examples and explain the lessons not just give out the answers. I am a teacher so you really don't need to tell me how to do my job!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^ calculus it's okay, I ignored it :) why does 3x^2 go to the left side? I though you make all x to one side and y's the other?

calculusfunctions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Because it is 3x²(dy/dx) and you're isolating dy/dx.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since @eda2012 already posted the correct solution, go ahead and observe it and then tell me which of her steps confuses you, if any. Alright?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure! Someone else is asking for my help so I'll go and get them started. You call me when you're ready. Take your time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm sorry that took forever, I had a lab report to complete. But, I relooked over the problem and it seems to make a little more sense. Thank you so much for your help!
