If you have an equation such as this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] x^3-6xy+6=0 [/tex]

Would you solve this equation with implicit differentiation or could you solve for y to get [tex]y= \frac {x^3+6}{6x} [/tex] and then use the Quotient Rule to solve for its derivative? Just need some clarification....thanks in advance.
