Calculus 1 Implicit differentiation
posted by jahil .
Help please help me understand what i am doing wrong in this problem! x^3+3x^2y+y^3=8 find dy/dx using implict differentiation. The answer is x^2+2xy
 but i keep getting x^2y
x^2+y^2 
x^2+y^2

x^3+3x^2y+y^3=8
3x^2 + 3x^2 dy/dx + y(6x) + 3y^2 dy/dx = 0
dy/dx(3x^2 + 3y^2) = 3x^2  6xy
dy/dx = 3x(x + 2y)/(3(x^2 + y^2)
= x(x+2y)/(x^2 + y^2)
or
= (x^2 + 2xy)/(x2 + y^2)
I don't understand the answer the way you typed it, but there should definitely be a negative in there.
