Suppose there exists a relation among three coordinatesx,yandzsuch that

[tex]f(x,y,z) = 0[/tex]

Then prove the following relation

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\left(\frac{\delta x}{\delta y} \right)_{z} = \frac{1}{\left( \frac{\delta y}{\delta x} \right)_{z}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure how to go about this one. Any suggestions?
