Implicit differentiation question Given: yx−y=x2+1
Implicit differentiation question
Answer & Explanation
You claim that
This is absqrt, since the quotient of two second degree polynomials can't be a second degree polynomial. In fact you get two non vanishing terms which are off.
I don't understand what your procedure is, also. I would proceed as follows:
An explicit approach:
Rewrite as , and factor out y to get , This is straightforward to differentiate, yielding .
