    you could solve for y then differentiate that way or you could do implicit if you wanted.

    i did go through to the answer. i just didn't rearrange it to solve for dy/dx= y', which is basic algebra, a prerequisite for your calculus course.

    oops forgot the tanx in there but you just move the one term to the other side then divide by 2ytanx

    that last drawing was completely wrong, i don't have time to write it out. it's really basic stuff you should know.

    that's not the answr there. thats me saying that y' = dy/dx in case you didn't know that so in the equation, y' = dy/dx
