I took the derivative and solved for y'. I got y'=-1/6x/y+1/2y. hmm...what am I suppose to do?

**Reiny**, Sunday, November 18, 2007 at 1:24amleave your derivative as

dy/dx = (2x-6)/(-12y) after you differentiated implicitly.

then (2x-6)/(-12y) = 0 can only be true if

2x-6 = 0

x = 3 now put that back into the original equation to get y = ...

your equation will be y = that value
