Use implicit differentiation to find dy/dx if cos xy = 2x^2 - 3y.

I'm stuck on this problem because I'm getting thrown off on how to factor this. Here's my work so far:

-{[(dy/dx)y + y]sin xy} = 4x - 3(dy/dx)
-{[(dy/dx)y + y]sinxy} + 3(dy/dx) = 4x

...now what?

Thx

    Differentiate. y= (cos x)^x u= cos x du= -sin x dx ln y = ln(cos x)^x ln y = x ln(cos x) (dy/dx)/(y)= ln(cos x) (dy/dx)= y ln(cos x) = (cos x)^x * (ln cos x) (dx/du)= x(cos x)^(x-1) * (-sin x) = - x sin(x)cos^(x-1)(x) (dy/dx)-(dx/du)= …

    Use implicit differentiation to find dy/dx. e^4x = sin(x+2y). This is a practice problem. It says the correct answer is 4e^x/(2sin(x+2y)) but I keep getting 4e^(4x)/(2cos(x+2y)). I thought the derivative of e^(4x) would be 4e^(4x), …
