##  Step-by-step Solution 

Problem to solve:

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(x\tan\left(y\right)\right)$

Specify the solving method

1

The derivative of a function multiplied by a constant ($\tan\left(y\right)$) is equal to the constant times the derivative of the function

$\tan\left(y\right)\frac{d}{dx}\left(x\right)$
2

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

$\tan\left(y\right)$

$\tan\left(y\right)$
