F(x,y) = F1(x,y)i + F2(x,y)j, F is a vector valued function of x,y. How to find dy/dx?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The book gives the answer as

dy/dx = (F1(x,y))/(F2(x,y)). But I do not know how to get to this answer at all. Find the partial derivative is what I can do, but how to get to dy/dx when the main function is F(x,y)?
