## Homework Statement

Am I right to treat dy/dx as a fraction in this scenerio?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

[tex]= \frac{\frac{-dy}{dx}} {(\frac{dy}{dx})^2}[/tex]

[tex]= \frac{\frac{-dy}{dx}} {\frac{dy}{dx} (\frac{dy}{dx})}[/tex]

[tex]= \frac{1}{\frac{dy}{dx}}[/tex]

Also, would we be able to multiple out dy/dx if we had for example:

[tex] 2 = \frac{1}{\frac{dy}{dx}}[/tex]

[tex] 2(\frac{dy}{dx}) = 1 [/tex]
