# Implicit DifferentiationWatch

#1
Hi so I have an equation which I am asked to differentiate ye^-2x=2x+y^2
I know the first bit is a product (I think that's what it's called) where I have to make it uv then use udv + vdu but then I have something that looks like this:

(-2ye^-2x+e^-2x)Dy/dx=2dx + 2ydy

And I don't know how to amalgamate the dys and dxs ... I hope this makes sense... Thanx

I think you've differentiated improperly.

Working?

For the first half of the equation I have (y*e^-2x*-2+e^-2x*1)which is the dy/dx of ye^-2x then for the second half I have 2dx + 2ydy differentiating each term with respect to x/y... It's just that now I have one part of the equation with dy/dx and the other separate dx and dy

I see...well you're close with the LHS. You have the product rule and implicit differentiation. But dy/dx is not supposed to be multiplied by each term. On the RHS, I'm not sure how you have what you have. When you differentiate a function of x with respect to x, you don't have a dy/dx.

It might be helpful to review the topics.

But I'll start you of
If , then

So from what your saying would it be for the RHS simply 2 +2y?

hey, how on earth did you write in 'equation'..? o.0

Sorry, I was still editing. I couldn't figure out how to insert a new line in the box so deleted it.
