Implicit differentiation - Derivatives

Implicit differentiation

So far, we have always tried to configure a relation to an explicit function in the form of y = f(x) before finding the derivative of the relation, but what if this is impossible to do so? In this section, we will first learn to identify the difference between explicit functions and implicit functions. Then we will learn how to differentiate a relation with a mix of variables x and y using the method called Implicit Differentiation.
