To find the derivative of ( e^y = xy^2 ), you can use implicit differentiation:

- Differentiate both sides of the equation with respect to ( x ).
- Apply the chain rule to the left side.
- Differentiate ( xy^2 ) with respect to ( x ) on the right side using the product rule.

The steps are as follows:

- Differentiating ( e^y ) with respect to ( x ) using the chain rule gives ( e^y \cdot \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} ).
- Applying the product rule to ( xy^2 ), we get ( x \cdot 2y \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} + y^2 ).
- Combining these results, we have ( e^y \cdot \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = x \cdot 2y \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} + y^2 ).
- Solve for ( \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} ) by isolating it on one side of the equation. You'll get:

[ \frac{{dy}}{{dx}} = \frac{{y^2}}{{e^y - 2xy}} ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
