Re: 2nd Derivative Implicit

I didn't realize I had almost gotten that right. Thanks for showing me your work, Skeeter.

Re: 2nd Derivative Implicit

I have another problem of a similar nature to add to this.

First derivative with respect to x: 1)

Solve for dy/dx: 2)

Now things get hairy taking second d: 3)

Substituting dy/dx back into the game: 4)

step 5),

And then,

I get stuck here now. I can't factor out the 2.

Differentiating here, , y''= \frac{sin(x)- 2y- 4xy'}{x^2}[/tex]
