    It is 2x + 8y - 2.

    Got it by expanding the brackets: x^2 + 4yx - x + 4xy + 16y^2 -4y -x - 4y + 1. Which simplifies to: x^2 + 8xy + 16y^2 - 2x -8y + 1. Taking the derivative of that with respect to x: 2x + 8y + 0 - 2 - 0 + 0 Which simplifies to 2x + 8y -2 or 2(x+4y-1)

    Or using chain rule: \[2(x+4y-1)^{1}(\frac{ d }{ dx }(x+4y-1))\] \[\frac{ d }{ dx } = 1\] Therfore, \[2(x+4y-1)(1) = 2x + 8y - 2\]

    2(x+4y-1)=2x+8y-2.

    @carson889: wait i mean \[\frac{ dy }{ dx } = (x+4y - 1)^{}\] \((x+4y -1)^{2}\) is the result of \(\frac{ dy }{ dx }\) it isn't \[\frac{ d }{ dx} (x +4y -1)^{2}\] any idea???

    You need to use the chain rule, as this is implicit differentiation, not partial.

    So, are we trying to find \(y\) ?

    Yeah, so it's an actually differential equation which you have to solve. Here:

    Define (all in terms of x): \[ v=4y+x\implies v'=4y'+1 \]So: \[ \frac{v'-1}{4}=(v-1)^2\implies\\ \frac{v'}{4v^2-8v+5}=1 \]Integrating both sides: \[ \int \frac{v'}{4v^2-8v+5}\;dx=\int 1\;dx=\\ \frac{\tan^{-1}(2v-2)}{2}=x+C \]Solving for \(v\): \[ v=\frac{\tan(2(x+C))+2}{2} \]Substituting \(y\): \[ y=\frac{\tan(2(x+C))-2x+2}{8} \] That took forever.
