# If x 2 + 3 x 2 y 4 = y + 8 , find d y / d x .

To determine

To calculate: The value of dydx for the provided equation x2+3x2y4=y+8.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is, x2+3x2y4=y+8.

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 product rule of derivatives,

ddx(uv)=udvdx+vdudx

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+3x2y4=y+8

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

ddx(x2+3x2y4)=ddx(y+8)

Now use the product rule of derivatives,

ddx(uv)=udvdx+vdudx

To obtain the derivative of x2y4
