It's just a level of calculus.... I need to find the derivative of this equation...
solve for y and take the derivative?
This section involves implicit differentiation
did you take the derivative?
No I'm still stuck on this problem!!
I don't know how to with those fractions
the derivative of \(\frac{x^2}{16}\) is \(\frac{x}{8}\)
Really? Wouldn't the 16 become a zero?
and the derivative with respect to \(x\) of \(-\frac{y^2}{9}\) is \[-\frac{2y}{9}y'\]
no it is a constant, think \[\frac{x^2}{16}=\frac{1}{16}x^2\]
Am I just using power rule here? I don't need to use quotient rule (that's what I was thinking...?)
@satellite73 I've been getting mixed answers from people. When do I know when I take the derivative of y to have yy' versus just y'???
