I would first rewrite the equation as this: Differentiating both sides with respect to x, we get All you need to do know is group the terms together and then solve for . --Chris
(use the fact that by the chain rule) now substitue for 3, which yields
Thanks! One follow up question just to verify: The solution is not complete until making the substitution (1/x)(y^3+2y^2) for 3?
Actually you don't have to, I dont really know why I did... Both are right answers
