Hi all!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In questions having implicit functions,

this expression -> "d/dx y^2" often appears in the calculation process.

I use the chain rule to convert it to 2y x dy/dx

But why can the chain rule be used here?

I actually don't understand at all..

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks guys!
