Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wolfram is giving me the required answer however, the steps it uses I find very confusing. Can anyone share some light on how wolfram achieved the correct answer.

As im new to this site, I wont be using any code. I am in the process of writing it up on Latex.

Here is the link for wolframs partial derivative widget

However it keeps changing my function, if the exponential appears on the bottom, can you please use this function

(((1)\(y)^(0.5))))(e^((-x^2-4y^2)\(4y))) WITH RESPECT TO Y

Thankyou everyone, it might seem like an elementary question. The bit I don't understand though is where it says factor out the constants. Its not the factor out the constants but, but the differentiation inside that subsection. That's my main problem
