# If  p 2 + 4 p − q = 4 ,  find  d p / d q .

To determine

To calculate: The value of dpdq if p2+4pq=4.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is, p2+4pq=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,

p2+4pq=4

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

ddq(p2+4pq)=ddq(4)

To obtain the derivatives of p
