Chapter 2 - The Derivative - 2.7 Implicit Differentiation - Exercises Set 2.7 - Page 166: 10



Work Step by Step

In order to derivate this function you have to apply implicit differentation method. First, take the function to it's f(x)=0 form $\cos(xy^2)-y=0$ Then derivate the whole equation. Rember the put y' every time you derivate y $-(y^2+2xyy')\sin(xy^2)-y'=0$ *Note: In this one, you have to apply the chain rule Solve for y' and you have the answer: $-y'(2xy\sin(xy^2)+1) = y^2\sin(xy^2)$ $y'=\dfrac{-y^2\sin(xy^2)}{2xy\sin(xy^2)+1}$
