THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP WITH THAT LAST QUESTION. THAT'S THE ANSWER I GOT...BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I WAS DOING IT RIGHT. It's great to use this board when you can't get ahold of any of your friends to help you!
here is another problem:
f(x)=1 + xy = e^xy
I think i am having problems with deriving e^xy implicitly. Could someone do it and show his work. THANKS.

f(x) = 1 + xy = e^xy
^That does not make sense.
Anyway, if you want to differentiate e^(xy) with respect to x, use the following rule:
d/dx(e^u) = e^u(du/dx)
so you know it's e^xy * d/dx(xy) =
e^xy * (x(dy/dx) + y)
