Solved example of implicit differentiation
Apply implicit differentiation by taking the derivative of both sides of the equation with respect to the differentiation variable
The derivative of the constant function ($16$) is equal to zero
The derivative of a sum of two or more functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function
The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$
The derivative of the linear function is equal to $1$
Any expression multiplied by $1$ is equal to itself
The derivative of the linear function is equal to $1$
The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$
Subtract the values $2$ and $-1$
