  • A function $f(x,y)$ is said to be implicit if it is jumbled in such a way,that it is not possible to write $y$ exclusively s a function of $x$.
  • $\large\frac{d}{dx}$$\phi(y)=\large\frac{d}{dy}$$\phi(y).\large\frac{dy}{dx}$
Step 1:
Differentiating w.r.t $x$ we get
$[\sec (x+y)$ can be differentiated by chain rule.]
Apply product rule to differentiate $xy$
Step 2:
Therefore $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=\large\frac{y-\sec(x+y).\tan(x+y)}{\sec(x+y).\tan(x+y)-x}$
