comment Can you differentiate with respect to a sum?
@Christian thanks for your reply .. I've edited my question a bit to clarify a few things. Is it ok to label $x=5a+3b$ and $y=3a+5b$ or like J.M. said, do I need to write $3a+5b$ in terms of $x$?

comment Can you differentiate with respect to a sum?
Thanks @J.M. @Henry @Jim and @david. I've edited my question a bit to clarify that $a$ and $b$ are not dependent on $\alpha$ or $\beta$. So is it ok to label $x=5a+3b$ and $y=3a+5b$ or like J.M. said, do I need to write $3a+5b$ in terms of $x$?
