If we wanted to find dy dx , we could do so by solving for y first: x 2 = e xy ln x 2 = xy ln x 2 x = y , and then calculating the derivative of ln x 2 x . Heath David Hart Math 1205 § 3.6: Implicit Differentiation Outline Implicit Differentiation Normal Lines Higherordered derivatives Implicit Differentiation Implicit Differentiation is a technique which allows us to calculate dy dx even when it is difficult or impossible to solve directly for y in terms of x . Heath David Hart Math 1205 § 3.6: Implicit Differentiation Outline Implicit Differentiation Normal Lines Higherordered derivatives How to perform Implicit Differentiation: 1. Differentiate both sides of the equation.Differentiate both sides of the equation....
