### Assignment 7

Calculate if:

### Solution

Implicit differentiation can also used to calculate the second derivative. In this case the product rule in combination with the quotient rule is applied:

We can differentiate again:

We can verify the result because the original expression can easily be written in explicit form:

and then the first and second derivative can be found in the usual way. Verify this.
