Implicit and Logarithmic Differentiation

Read this section to learn about implicit and logarithmic differentiation. Work through practice problems 1-6.


This short section presents two final differentiation techniques. These two techniques are more specialized than the ones we have already seen and they are used on a smaller class of functions. For some functions, however, one of these may be the only method that works. The idea of each method is straightforward, but actually using each of them requires that you proceed carefully and practice.
