Here, we show you a step-by-step solved example of implicit differentiation. This solution was automatically generated by our smart calculator:
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 $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$
Add the values $2$ and $-1$
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 $-1$
The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$
Any expression to the power of $1$ is equal to that same expression
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 $-1$
The power rule for differentiation states that if $n$ is a real number and $f(x) = x^n$, then $f'(x) = nx^{n-1}$
We need to isolate the dependent variable $y$, we can do that by simultaneously subtracting $2x$ from both sides of the equation
Divide both sides of the equation by $2$
Take $\frac{-2}{2}$ out of the fraction
Divide both sides of the equation by $y$
