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

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 7:23pmI am not certain what you mean by x√2.

Please explain

**TutorCat**, Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 7:31pmapply quotient rule:

y'=[(1+y')(x√2)-(x+y)(√2)]/(x√2)^2

implicit differentiation:

solve for y'

**drwls**, Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 8:04pmI agree with Bob. A clarification is necessary.

(x)/(x√2) looks like 1/√2 to me, and the derivative of that term is zero.
