1. can anyone help me with finding derivative of acrcsin (xy):(

Hi.
I m having trouble finding the derivative of:

x^2 + y^2 = arcsin (xy)

Maybe this is a easy piece of cake for you..but not for me!

Thank you..

2. Hi mookie

I assume that you differentiate it with respect to x. Have you learned about implicit differentiation?

EDIT :discussed here :http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...entiation.html
