    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)

    could you please help me out and explain the answer

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

    Thank you..

    Hi mookie

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