Lecture 17: Implicit Difierentiation (Chapter 3, Section 17) Explicit Functions ex. Find dy dx if y ¡ x = e tan x . Implicit Functions ex. Consider the equation x 2 y + 3 x = y 4 . If y is a difierentiable function of x , can we flnd dy dx ? NOTE: This equation implicitly deflnes more than one function y = f ( x ). We seek a formula for dy dx for all functions f ( x ) satisfying the above equation.

2 Implicit Difierentiation requires the Chain Rule. Consider the following examples: d dx ( x ) = d dx ( x 2 ) = Now suppose that y is a difierentiable function of x . d dy ( y 2 ) = What is d dx ( y 2 )?
3 To Difierentiate Implicitly: Assume y is a difierentiable function of x . 1. Difierentiate both sides of the equation with re- spect to x . 2. Collect all terms involving dy dx on one side of the equation. 3. Rewrite by factoring out dy dx . 4. Solve for dy dx . ex. Find dy dx if x 2 y + 3 x = y 4 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. Itās truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any universityās resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLAās materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
