Best answer
Implicit Differentiation.

Let a function $y=y(x)$ be implicitly defined by $F(x, y)=G(x, y)$. To find the derivative $y^{\prime}$ do the following:
(a) Use the chain rule to differentiate both sides of the given equation, thinking of $x$ as the independent variable.
(b) Solve the resulting equation for $\frac{d y}{d x}$.
