We are learning logs and expos in calc (everyone's favorite topic) and I got stuck on two problems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First one is y = x^-x^2 and we have to find y'.

On this one I can't figure out how to start it. I know we are suppose to show our work and then get help here, but I just can't figure out how to pull y's out of that equation and then do it implicitly. I'd say chain rule somehow. but first do x^-2x and somehow do that.

Second one is y = (3x^2+2y^2) and we have to find y'.

on this one I think you do it so you get 1 / x * (3x^2 + 2y^2) * 6x + 4y' but then i get stuck, cause my algebra sucks.

thanks for any advice and a happy turkey day to all.
