Hi, I'm doing an online course for Calculus 12 and I have been struggling with Implicit Differentiation, hoping someone could maybe help me. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not positive I'm doing this right but maybe someone can point me in the right direction, this is what I have so far

y/(x-y) = x^2+1

y=(x^2+1)(x-y)

y' = (2x)(x-y)+(x^2+1)(1-y')

y' = 2x^2-2xy+x^2-x^2y'+1-y'

This is where I get stuck and am not sure if I'm making a mistake or know what to do next. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
