# Find dy/dx for the functions in Problems 7-10. x 2 + 2 y 2 − 4 = 0

To determine

To calculate: The value of dydx for the provided equation x2+2y24=0.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is, x2+2y24=0.

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+2y24=0

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

ddx(x2+2y24)=ddx(0)
