    is it dx/dy?

    I just want to make sure the question, because dx/ dy !=dy/dx

    if it is dx/ dy. it's not easy to solve. you must solve for x first , then take derivative respect to y.

    so when u diff sin(x) it will be cos(x)dx/dy

    the case where u use a reciprocal is by using the chain rule and cancelling each term out

    nope i told u don't do that, unless if u want to apply Lebenz rule u need to take the inverse of the function then take the reciprocal ...

    because calculus is about functions and expansions

    read that carefully If the derivative of y = f(x) is dy/dx, then the derivative of the inverse function which expresses x in terms of y is given by the formula

    in other words ur Lebenz works if x= sin(y)+5e^y

  44. mathsmind

    so u can take the inverse of the function then apply the rule ok

    so both methods work fine, actually u made me come with a new theory in math, or a different proof for Leben'z formula. although maths is not my major, but i will write a new paper on this and publish it
