The question and my workings are attached:
Sorry it seems that attachments do not upload:
Here is the Question:
Suppose R = R(q,p) = e^(q+p), where p = p(q) is defined through the equation
q^2*p+p^2*q+qp = 3
Letn r(q) = R(q,p(q)). Use the chain rule to calculate the derivative dr/dq at the point q=1.
Can you please tell me if it is correct to assume that this question is asking you to insert q^2*p+p^2*q+qp = 3 into e^(q+p), for p?
From there I have tried to derive the chain for dr/dq:
since e^(q+q^2*p+p^2*q+qp) = 3, a constant
dr/dq = 0
so the chain
(∂R)/(∂q)*dq/(dq )+(∂R)/(∂r)*dr/(dq)= 0
(∂R)/(∂r)*dr/(dq)= - (∂R)/(∂q)
dr/(dq)= - (∂R)/(∂q )* (dr)/(dR)
dr/(dq)= - (∂R)/((∂q )/((∂R)/(∂r)))
I dont think this is the correct chain because I can’t find dr/dqfrom the function given.
I would be most grateful if you could point me along the correct direction for this.
Must I create two chains? i.e. one for dp/dq and then somehow incorporate this for dr/dq?
