I stumbled upon this calculus implicit differential question: find (du)/(dy) of the function u=sin(y^2+u). The answer is (2ycos(y^2+u))/(1−cos(y^2+u)). I understand how to get the answer for the numerator, but how do we get the denominator part? And can anyone point out the real intuitive difference between chain rule and implicit differentiation? I can't seem to get my head around them and when or where should I use them.

The answer is 2 y cos ( y 2 + u ) 1 cos ( y 2 + u ) . I understand how to get the answer for the numerator, but how do we get the denominator part?

We have u = sin ( y 2 + u ), differentiating gives
d u d y = ( 2 y + d u d y ) cos ( y 2 + u )
This can be rearranged to
d u d y ( 1 cos ( y 2 + u ) ) = 2 y cos ( y 2 + u ) .
So
d u d y = 2 y cos ( y 2 + u ) 1 cos ( y 2 + u ) .

When applying the chain rule, you need the differentiate u also. Explicitly,
d u d y = d d y ( sin ( y 2 + u ) ) = cos ( y 2 + u ) ( d d y ( y 2 + u ) ) = cos ( y 2 + u ) ( 2 y + d u d y ) .
Solving for d u d y , we find the answer you announced.

Given e L + K L = K e K , we are being asked to find d L d K . I think O need to use implicit differentiation, but I am really not sure how to do it!

So my problem is that I have to use implicit differentiation to find the derivative of F ( x , y ) = e x y x when F ( x , y ) = 10 and the equation of the tangent at the point ( 1 , log ( 11 ) ). So I tried to solve this using two ways:
The first way I used was rearranging the equation to 10 + x = e x y and then using ln to simply into ln ( 10 + x ) = x y before using implicit differentiation. The result is
d y d x = 1 10 x + x 2 y x
and after substituting the point, I get approximately −0.950 as the slope.
The second way I used was just differentiating it straight away rather than rearranging and I get
d y d x = 1 e x y y x .
But when I sub the point in I get approximately −0.688 as the slope. So I'm not sure if I've done something wrong when getting the derivatives or am I not allowed to rearrange the equation?

How to find
d y / d x
from
x 3 y 6 = ( x + y ) 9
using implicit differentiation? I tried solving but I ended up with solution that does not agree with my textbook answer. How can I get
d y / d x = y / x

Find the equation of the tangent line to the curve (a lemniscate) 2 ( x 2 + y 2 ) 2 = 25 ( x 2 y 2 ) at the point (3,1). Write the equation of the tangent line in the form y = m x + b .
Every time that we do it we get a ridiculous number for the slope (150/362)
