(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Z is defined implicitly as a function of x,y by equation (z^2)x + 3xy^2 + e^((y^2)z) = 4. Find dz/dx

2. Relevant equations

dz/dx = -Fx/Fz

3. The attempt at a solution

Fx= z^2 + 3y^2

Fz=2zx+(y^2)e^((y^2)z)

dz/dx= (z^2+3y^2)/[2zx+(y^2)e^((y^2)z)]

I'm not sure if I used the partial derivatives correctly, and a little unsure about the procedure as well. Someone please check that and tell me if it's correct. Thankyou
