    Differentiating implicitly

    Hi all,

    I am revising on how to differentiate implicitly. I know how to find dy/dx for:

    x+y

    when it is equal to something. The problem here it is not equal to anything and I have both 1+dy/dx stuck on one side. What am I supposed to do here?

    when x+y what is dy/dx?

    I am getting 1+dy/dx but on one side.

    Thanks.

    All right, if f(x)=x+y(x) then, \dfrac{d}{dx}f(x)=1+\dfrac{d}{dx}y(x)
