# How do you implicitly differentiate #-y= 4x^3y^2+2x^2y^3-2xy^4 #?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Implicit Differentiation is a special case of the chain rule. When you differentiate the y variable in a term or factor you differentiating with respect to x. Because of this you have include the factor of

We will have to use the product rule, power rule and chain rule.

Divide all the terms by -1 to remove the negative

Differentiate Implicitly

Distribute the negative

Gather the terms with the

Factor out

Divide to isolate

Multiple numeric factors to simplify

Below are a couple of tutorials include implicit differentiation
