Is anything else than the chain rule:
In your particular case ,
I'm sorry but I don't get it, can you elaborate a little more?
Let be any (differentiable) function of . Do you know the derivative of with respect to ?
Of course, 2y.(dy/dx)
But I don't get how that relates to my specific problem. I appreciate your patience with me
You have the following equality
If two things are the same, their integrals should also be the same. So, integrate both sides and see what happens to the left hand side of the equation
I get it! Clever way of solving the problem
