Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2could you implicitly differentiate that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you will need chain rule here whats d/dx x^2 =...? whats d/dx y^2=...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what ? where does 2*2 come from ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2d/dx[2(x^2+y^2)^2] = 2*(2 (x^2+y^2)) times d/dx(x^2+y^2) this is because of chain rule, got this step ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2d/dx (x^2) = 2x thats why and the other 2 was already there

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, so now what about d/dx (x^2+y^2) =...?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here, chain rule again comes into picture d/dx f(y) = f'(y) dy/dx so d/dx (y^2) = 2y dy/dx got this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2d/dx[2(x^2+y^2)^2] = 2*(2 (x^2+y^2)) times d/dx(x^2+y^2) this part ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2derivative of outer times derivative of inner like for (sin x)^3 we have outer = x^3, derivative = 3x^2 inner = sin x derivative = cos x so, 3 (sin x)^2 cos x got this ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in same way d/dx [(x^2+y^2)^2] = 2 (x^2+y^2) times d/dx (x^2+y^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i get that, but in this problem im confused with why the exponent goes away

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, you said d/dx (x^2) = 2x why did the exponent go away here ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you're finding the derivative of the inside?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we do find derivative of inside in chain rule, right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my professor also taught us a way of outer first then rewrite inner and then multiple by the derivative of the inner.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2he must have meant "derivative of outer first ....."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2d/dx[2(x^2+y^2)^2] = 2*(2 (x^2+y^2)) times d/dx(x^2+y^2) = 4(x^2+y^2)times d/dx(x^2+y^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry i didn't get your question?

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so can it be written like this? : d/dx 4(x^2+y^2) (2x+2y) ?

hartnn
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, why would d/dx come in front again ?

mathcalculus
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i get rid of it?

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since i have the derivative already?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2d/dx [(x^2+y^2)^2] = 2 (x^2+y^2) times d/dx (x^2+y^2) = 4 (x^2+y^2) times (2x+2y dy/dx) see whether you get this?

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah i got it, but why don't we do dy/dx here: 4 (x^2+y^2) times (2x+2y dy/dx)dw:1381774790286:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can't bc we have to leave it as it is right? according to the chain rule

hartnn
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because there, you have not differentiated x^2+y^2 yrt

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and yes, we need to leave it as it is, that too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now what do we do

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1same for the other side?

hartnn
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, other side is too simple. try ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right side is just 25(2x2y dy/dx) isn't it ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what why ? we need chain rule for just y^2 here, isn't it ?

hartnn
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its like 25x^2  25y^2 derivative = 25(2x)  25 (2y dy/dx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where did i go wrong?

hartnn
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the x^2y^2 part was unnecessary, you though it was chain rule again ?

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait it wasn't because it had no exponent?

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now do we plug in x and y?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2correct! put x=3, y=1 in that...
