Hi, can anyone help me with the following differentiation question?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find first partial derivatives w.r.t to x and y for:

tan (x/y)

Can anyone offer any help on how to approach this question? I know when you differentiate (x/y) using the product rule, that you have to differentiate y implicitly...but how does that work when using partial derivatives?

Thanks for taking time to read
