    x = 1 + (lny)/(ln5)

    find dx/dy

    i have got as far as saying using the quotient rule, lny = u, ln5 = v

    so ln5(1/y) - nothing as ln5 = 0, times lny = 0.. or do you just write lny?
    divided by ln5^2

    so in summary, i have got ln5(1/y)/(ln5)^2

    is this right?? I am confused plz help guys!!

    + rep thanks!

    ah k, so when differentiating the u (dv/dx)
    it is just 0 times lny which is 0?

    ^ What he said. ln5 can be taken as a constant and can be written as

    1/ln5 *lny.
