If one was to differntiate a function implicity eg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

sin x + cos y = 5,

would one show this by writing:

d/dx(sin x + cos y = 5)

= and then differentiate with respect to x? I wasnt sure whether or not the bracket goes around the whole thing or just the left hand side.

Thanks
