To find the derivative of ( y ) with respect to ( x ) in the equation ( \ln(xy) = x + y ), you can use implicit differentiation.

Start by differentiating both sides of the equation with respect to ( x ):

[ \frac{d}{dx}[\ln(xy)] = \frac{d}{dx}[x + y] ]

Using the chain rule and product rule on the left side:

[ \frac{1}{xy}\frac{d}{dx}(xy) = 1 + \frac{dy}{dx} ]

[ \frac{y + x\frac{dy}{dx}}{xy} = 1 + \frac{dy}{dx} ]

Now, solve for ( \frac{dy}{dx} ):

[ y + x\frac{dy}{dx} = xy + y\frac{dy}{dx} ]

[ x\frac{dy}{dx} - y\frac{dy}{dx} = xy - y ]

[ \frac{dy}{dx}(x - y) = xy - y ]

[ \frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{xy - y}{x - y} ]

So, the derivative of ( y ) with respect to ( x ) is ( \frac{xy - y}{x - y} ).

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.
