Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could solve for y then differentiate that way or you could do implicit if you wanted.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0double check what the derivative of tanx is too, i'm not 100% sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahan ok and I also have an answer for this that my professor gave which is: \[(1y ^{2}\sec ^{2}x)/2y \tan (x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's what you'll get once you rearrage and solve for y'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmmm but can you please also show me to rearrange it if its possible for you?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops forgot the tanx in there but you just move the one term to the other side then divide by 2ytanx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that last drawing was completely wrong, i don't have time to write it out. it's really basic stuff you should know.

malcolm11235

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that'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
