Homework Help: Implicit Differentiation Check

  1. Oct 8, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    just a check, in Implicit Differentiation if you have lets say
    (x2+y2)2 would you get
    2(x2+y2)(2x+2y(dy/dx)) or would it go out of the whole function in the chain rule and be
    2(x2+y2)(2x+2y)(dy/dx)

    much appreciated.
