Thank you for viewing my thread. I have been given the following steps for logarithmic differentiation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Take natural logarithms of both sides of an equation y = f(x) and use the Laws of Logarithms to simplify.

2. Differentiate implicitly with respect to x.

3. Solve the resulting equation for y'.

I was wondering if I could go about this in another way.

1. Take natural logarithms of both sides of an equation y = f(x) and use the Laws of Logarithms to simplify.

2. At this point I would have something like:

ln(y) = a+b+c

Instead of doing implicit differentiation , could I do this:

e^[ln(y)] = e^(a+b+c)

y = e^(a+b+c)

Thanks.
