    Transcript

    00:01 Our next question, you can see that we?ve got a cos term here, so, we're going to be dealing with a little bit of trigonometry.

    00:07 We are looking at differentiating cos y plus 2x to the 5 equals to 10.

    00:13 If you try to rearrange this for y you?re going to end up with some term with cos inverse of a term which again has going to get messy, so let?s just take with differentiating this implicitly.

    00:26 Each term we have to differentiate, so, we're going to start with cos y, remember firstly you?re attempting to differentiate a y term and secondly this also has trig, so, you need to remember if you?re differentiating cos y with respects to y.

    00:43 Remember that cos goes to sine but this is going to go to minus sine y.

    00:48 Apologies, coz goes to minus sine, so cos y becomes minus sine y and then you multiply it with the factor of dy/dx because it was a y term plus 2x to the 5, will differentiate to 10x to the 4, when you bring the power down so you times it and decreased the power by 1 equals to 10, which is a constant that just goes to zero.

    01:11 All we have to do now is rearrange this equation, so, if I leave the 10x to the 4 here and move the minus sine y to the other side, that becomes positive sine y, dy/dx.

    01:23 And then finally, 10x to the 4 over sine y equals to dy/dx.

    01:31 So that?s your gradient here, so you can substitute numbers and once again to find what the particular gradient at different points will be.
