I'd differentiate it implicitly rather than trying to re-arrange everything...that way it's a lot easier:
Just differentiate everything on both sides with respect to x:
Upon re-arranging:
I am trying to find dy/dx
The problem states: e^y = 1 + (X^2)(y)..My calculus book doesn't really explain how to get the derivative in terms I am making any sense of.
Can I rewrite this as?
y= ln(1+(x^2)(y))
What rule would I need to apply to get the next step? would this be a chain rule problem or is their some special log rule I am missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
