How do you go about solving implicit equations for y in terms of x that look like these?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y^{2}+ yx = 1

and

y^{3}+ yx = 1

or even more complicated implicit equations.

I'm taking AP Calculus AB this year and am just curious how this is done.

Here are the solutions from Wolframalpha:
