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

Learn how to solve implicit differentiation problems step by step online. Find the implicit derivative d/dx(x^2-xyy^2=3). 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 (3) is equal to zero. The derivative of a sum of two or more functions is the sum of the derivatives of each function. The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant (-1) is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function.

### Main Topic: Implicit Differentiation

Implicit differentiation makes use of the chain rule to differentiate implicitly defined functions. For differentiating an implicit function y(x), defined by an equation R(x, y) = 0, it is not generally possible to solve it explicitly for y(x) and then differentiate. Instead, one can differentiate R(x, y) with respect to x and y and then solve a linear equation in dy/dx for getting explicitly the derivative in terms of x and y.
