 ImplicitDiffSolution
 generate steps for implicit differentiation

 Calling Sequence ImplicitDiffSolution( f, y, x, opts )

Parameters

 f - algebraic equation y - names or function of dependent variable x - name of dependent variable opts - (optional) options of the form keyword=value, where keyword is one of output, displaystyle, or animated

Description

 • The ImplicitDiffSolution command computes the partial derivative of the function, y with respect to x, showing the steps required to make the computation. The input f defines y as a function of x implicitly. It must be an equation in x and y or an algebraic expression, which is understood to be equated to zero.
 • All other names, which appear in the input f and the derivative variable(s) x and are not of type constant, are treated as independent variables.
 • Optional arguments output, displaystyle, and animated can be passed to control the style of output.  These options are described in Student:-Basics:-OutputStepsRecord. The return value is controlled by the output option.
 • This function is part of the Student:-Calculus1 package.
