Hey everybody,

I have found a question in a textbook saying to use implicit differentiation to find dy/dx when x^5 + 3y^3 + 5 = 3x^6y^5.

i get as far as differentiating and i cant get the answer.

any help?

thanks in advance,

Mitch :)

ive done the differentiating on the right hand side. i tried on the left but its not right.

ive got 5x^4 + 9y^2 = ......

and im not sure what to do in terms of the implicit differentiation.

thanks
