If $x$ and $y$ are connected parametrically by the equations given in $ x = a \cos \theta, y = b \cos \theta $ without eliminating the parameter, Find $\frac{\large dy}{\large dx}$

$\begin{array}{1 1} \large\frac{3b}{2a} \\\large\frac{b}{2a} \\ \large\frac{-b}{a} \\ \large\frac{b}{a} \end{array} $

  • By chain rule we have $\large\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{dy}{d\theta}$$\times$$\large\frac{d\theta}{dx}$
Step 1:
Given :
Differentiate with respect to $\theta$
Step 2:
Differentiate with respect to $\theta$
Step 3:
$\quad\;=-b\sin\theta\times \large\frac{1}{-a\sin\theta}$
