Hello,
we have the following equation (pair of intersecting lines without the origin) :
using implicit differentiation, we find :
Now, if we reorganize the terms of the equation, we get:
using implicit differentiation, we find :
Why is the result different from the first one ?
If we only reorganize the terms, the plot of the equations should be the same (except at the origin), so the derivative at any point (slope of tangent) shoud be the same, no ?
