Use implicit differentiation to find the slope of the tangent line to the curve y/(x+7y)=x^5+7 at the point (1,(-8/55).
can anyone help me work out the problem step by step?
y (x+7y)-1 = x5 +7
multiply it out, gather the dx and dy terms, and solve for dy/dx
i got the slope to be -87/605 is that correct?
