Double Implicit differantion,
So I got this:

Now I have found that dy/dx = 2x/3y
How can I find d^2y/dx^2
?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If \[\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{2x}{3y}\]Then you just need to take the partial derivative of that to get the 2nd derivative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so this is what you have so far, right?\[x^{3}+y^{3}=1\rightarrow 3x^{2}+3y^{2}\frac{dy}{dx}=0\rightarrow \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{3x^{2}}{3y^{2}}\rightarrow \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{x^{2}}{y^{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then you take the derivative of that using the quotient rule of \[[\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}]'=\frac{g(x)f(x)'f(x)g(x)'}{[g(x)]^{2}}\] which is \[\frac{y^2(2x)x^2(2y)\frac{dy}{dx}}{[y^{2}]^{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's ok guys I think am gonna surpass this, I guess my answer is similar enought if not 100% correct , am gonna do some derivatives and head to sleep

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Seems I get the same answer you did, not sure where they are getting that extra x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2x^{2}3y ^{2}=4\] \[2*2x3*2y \frac{ dy }{dx }=0\] \[2x3y \frac{ dy }{dx }=0,\frac{ dy }{dx }=\frac{ 2x }{ 3y }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y }{dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 2 }{3 }\frac{y*1x \frac{ dy }{dx } }{ y ^{2} }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y }{dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 2 }{3 }\frac{yx \frac{ 2x }{3y } }{y ^{2} }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y}{dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }\frac{ \frac{ 3y ^{2}2x ^{2} }{ 3y } }{y ^{2} }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y }{ dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 2 }{9 }\frac{ 2x ^{2}3y ^{2} }{ y ^{3} }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y }{ dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 2 }{9 }\frac{ 4 }{y ^{3} }\] \[\frac{ d ^{2}y }{dx ^{2} }=\frac{ 8 }{9y ^{3} }\]
