### Difficult Problems

1

Solved example of implicit differentiation

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2+y^2=16\right)$
2

Apply implicit differentiation by taking the derivative of both sides of the equation with respect to the differentiation variable

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2+y^2\right)=\frac{d}{dx}\left(16\right)$
3

The derivative of the constant function ($16$) is equal to zero

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2+y^2\right)=0$
4

The derivative of a sum of two or more functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+\frac{d}{dx}\left(y^2\right)=0$

The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2y^{\left(2-1\right)}\frac{d}{dx}\left(y\right)=0$

Subtract the values $2$ and $-1$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2y\frac{d}{dx}\left(y\right)=0$
5

The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2y\frac{d}{dx}\left(y\right)=0$

The derivative of the linear function is equal to $1$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2\cdot 1yy^{\prime}=0$

Multiply $2$ times $1$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2yy^{\prime}=0$
6

The derivative of the linear function is equal to $1$

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x^2\right)+2yy^{\prime}=0$

The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$

$2x^{\left(2-1\right)}+2yy^{\prime}=0$

Subtract the values $2$ and $-1$

$2x+2yy^{\prime}=0$
7

The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$

$2x+2yy^{\prime}=0$
8

We need to isolate the dependent variable $y$, we can do that by subtracting $2x$ from both sides of the equation

$2yy^{\prime}=-2x$
9

Divide both sides of the equation by $2$

$yy^{\prime}=-x$
10

Divide both sides of the equation by $y$

$y^{\prime}=\frac{-x}{y}$

$y^{\prime}=\frac{-x}{y}$
