## Homework Statement

Find [tex]\frac{\partial{w}}{\partial{x}}[/tex] for [tex]F(x,y,z,w)=xyz+xzw-yzw+w^2-5=0[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to get partials (such as Dz/Dx) of functions in the form z = f(x,y). I'm having trouble figuring out this one since it's asking for the partial of w, which is all over the function. I tried putting everything equal to w, but that w

^{2}doesn't help. I thought of perhaps doing implicit differentiation, but I still end up with that extra w on one side.

I'm sure it's something tiny that I'm not seeing, but I need a little push in the right direction.

Thank you much.
