trivial counterexample: x+y=0 and the inverse x+y=0 are tangent at (0, 0) with slope -1.Math isn't my area but isn't this the case???????

While this solution is correct, it is much more cumbersome to work with, especially since you are pulling it down to a specific case. If it was put in a more general form, then it would be slightly less cumbersome to write out.Either way here's how I would do it

But then at that point it would just be easier to use the Inverse Function Theorem to kill it in one hit.
you don't remember learning slope of inverse function at inverse point = 1/(slope of function at function point) ?I honestly don't recall learning the inverse function theorem until first year uni to be fair (and basically never used it from 2nd year and later) , so I doubt the majority of the high-school students would even consider it.
Please share some more rants pls this is hilarious.
I'm pretty sure its not in the syllabus. There have been hsc questions on it before, but I definitely haven't learned it in class eitheryou don't remember learning slope of inverse function at inverse point = 1/(slope of function at function point) ?
because i certainly do remember that class in 3U
well fortunately, the other solution also works out (and a fair few students did go about that way solving it)I'm pretty sure its not in the syllabus. There have been hsc questions on it before, but I definitely haven't learned it in class either
actually i think this is not the only way to do it using differentiation, but it is probably the most obvious now that i think about it from a student perspectiveEither way here's how I would do it
It is in the syllabus, but in a slightly different format. Students are expected to be taught thatI'm pretty sure its not in the syllabus. There have been hsc questions on it before, but I definitely haven't learned it in class either
Well damn, we skipped completely over that in class haha. Still not too difficult to derive luckily, and is a fairly basic concept of inverse functions.It is in the syllabus, but in a slightly different format. Students are expected to know that
(dy/dx)(dx/dy) = 1
so they can do reciprocals of derivatives. This is basically how you find the derivative of the inverse function.
You were probably taught it implicitly without knowing. It basically formalises the ability to take reciprocals of derivatives - for example when finding the solution to dN/dt = kNWell damn, we skipped completely over that in class haha.

Yeah well it is pretty much an application of that, which is how they are able to ask questions on it in the hsc. Its more we weren't specifically told:You were probably taught it implicitly without knowing.

Bruuuh, and that people is the pinnacle of wtf?I was taught this special result because of MIF
except based on what Trebla said, that wasn't even need anyway, I'm just an idiot who hasn't bothered reviewing the syllabus outlinesYeah well it is pretty much an application of that, which is how they are able to ask questions on it in the hsc. Its more we weren't specifically told:
Oh well, its not hard to derive anyway lol.
Ah right, I didn't see that he meant that. Yeah thats much easier than the other method haha.except based on what Trebla said, that wasn't even need anyway, I'm just an idiot who hasn't bothered reviewing the syllabus outlines
by the statement of the question, one can see that dy/dx (p,p) = dx/dy (p,p) = 1
and the conclusion follows
Haha what really?apparently 5 people think that
I am not joking. 5 people committed the exact same monstrosity.Haha what really?
