dx/dy cos x sin y + x^5 = 11

i got dx/dy= (-cos x cos y)/ (-sin x sin y +5x^4)

But the wolfram got

(1- cos x cos y)/(5x^4-sin y sin x), where is the 1 come from?

so we are differentiating

cosx siny + x^5 = 11 implicitly ?

cosx(cosy) dy/dx + siny(-sinx) + 5x^4 = 0

dy/dx = (sinx siny - 5x^3)/(cosx cosy)

which agrees with my Wolfram result

just noticed you wanted dx/dy (strange)

cosx siny + x^5 = 11

cosx(cosy) + siny(-sinx) dx/dy = 5x^4 dx/dy = 0

dx/dy (5x4 - sinxsiny) = - cosxcosy

dx/dy = -cosxcosy/(5x^4 - sinxsiny)

the same as yours.
