Homework Help: I need help with a logarithmic differentiation

  1. Feb 16, 2017 #1
    The Problem: x+y=ln(2+xy) for x=-1 and y=1

    Attempt at Solution: So I started with taking the natural logs of both sides and then differentiating both sides. I don't know if I messed up somewhere along the way but I'm not arriving at the correct answer.

    If anyone can help, I would very much appreciate it.

    You have not said in the question whether you are finding dy/dx or dx/dy and is y a function of x or not? Make your question clearer.
