Follow the steps below for the given function. (Do not use mixed numbers in your answers.)
2x + 5y = 1
Solve the equation for y.
y =
Differentiate this equation with respect to x.
y ' =
Complete the steps below to implicitly take the derivative of the original equation.
2x + 5y = 1
+ (dy)/(dx) = 0
(dy)/(dx) =
(dy)/(dx) =

so what do you not get? If you can take a derivative, this should be a snap.
