Find dy/dx
y = (x+y)/(x√2)
I know that you can simplify the problem by arranging it to:
y = (x)/(x√2) + (y)/(x√2)
but I don't know where to go from here

I am not certain what you mean by x√2.
Please explain

apply quotient rule:

y'=[(1+y')(x√2)(x+y)(√2)]/(x√2)^2
implicit differentiation:

solve for y'

I agree with Bob. A clarification is necessary.
(x)/(x√2) looks like 1/√2 to me, and the derivative of that term is zero.
