# If  x 2 + y 2 = 4 ,  find  y ' .

To determine

To calculate: The value of y if x2+y2=4.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is, x2+y2=4.

Formula used:

When y is an implied function of x, obtain dydx by differentiating both sides of the equation with respect to x and then algebraically solve for dydx.

According to the chain rule, if f and g are differentiable functions with y=f(u) and u=g(x), then y is a differentiable function of x,

dydx=dydududx

Calculation:

Consider the provided equation,

x2+y2=4

First, take the derivative of both sides of the equation with respect to x as,

ddx(x2+
