[tex]\frac{d}{du} f(u(x,y), v(x,y))[/tex]

Will I get an inner derivative here? I'm not sure because I'm not differentiating with respect to x or y.

So, what do you think is the correct answer to your question?

I initially assumed I wouldn't get the inner derivatives because I wasn't differentiating with respect to the.. "inner variables". But I can't quite put it down in writing in a way that seems convincing to me, hence the uncertainty.

So, what do you think is the correct answer to your question?
