    implicit differentiation problem step by step (tell me if my concepts are wrong plz)

    if we implicitly differentiate y^3-xt^2=2

    is this the right approach?


    d/dy*dy/dx-[d/dx(x)*y^2+d/dy*x]

    which means (I intend it to mean)

    the derivative of y with respect to itself TIMES the derivative of y with respect to x MINUS [the derivative of x with respect to itself times y^2 PLUS the derivative of y with respect to itself TIMES x]


    firstly did I write in math what I wrote in english? and secondly is it correct?

    thanks!
