Mathematica is treating 'xy' as a unique variable, not a product.
Include a space between the variables OR use * to indicate
multiplication in your 'eq5' and I think you'll get what you want.
FYI, I looked at your notebook, and noticed you were using traditional
form input and output. Everyone has their own prefs here, but my
experience is that using StandardForm input/output helps you catch
your mistakes, making programming much less painful!! (You can always
make things pretty later...)
In[1]:= eq5 = x^3 - 3 x^2 y + 2 x y^2 == 12
Dt[eq5, x]
Solve[%, Dt[y, x]]
Out[1]= x^3 - 3 x^2 y + 2 x y^2 == 12
Out[2]= 3 x^2 - 6 x y + 2 y^2 - 3 x^2 Dt[y, x] + 4 x y Dt[y, x] == 0
Out[3]= {{Dt[y, x] -> (3 x^2 - 6 x y + 2 y^2)/(x (3 x - 4 y))}}
