  1. you can try this....

    so f'(x)= -8x-3/(1+ xy)

    Plug in 10 for x and 2 for y


    (-8(-10)-3)/(1+(-10)(2)= -3.66667

    How do you use imlicit differentiation to differentiate e^(xy)? I have the problem "use implicit differentiation to find dy/dx. e^(xy)+ x^2 - y^2 = 10. I've gotten to the point whereI have d/dx(e^(xy)) + 2x - 2ydy/dx = 0, but I

    Use implicit differentiation to find the slope of the tangent line to the curve at the point (4,1) -1x^2 - 4xy + 3y^3 = -29 I differentiated both sides and solved for dy/dx and got 2x-4y/9y^2-4x. Then I plugged in X and Y and got

    Suppose that x and y are related by the equation x^2/4 + y^3/2 = 4. Use implicit differentiation to determine dy/dx. My answer was 1/3y^2, y cannot = 0 but this is wrong.
