2xdx+ y dx + x dy -2ydy=0

solve for dy/dx

Then use that as m in

y=mx + b Puttingin the x,y point, solve for b.

then, for the normal, take the negative reciprocal of m, and again, solve for the line

y=-1/m x + b

**Reiny**, Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 7:58pmYou did not state the given point.

Using implicit derivative I found it to be

y' = (2x+y)/(2y-x)

sub in the given point, that gives you the slope of the tangent.

Now that you have the slope (m) and a given point, use the grade 9 method of finding the equation of the tangent.

Take the negative reciprocal of your slope, and the given point to find the equation of the normal.

**Damon**, Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 8:00pmYou forgot to say what point.

However in general we find the derivative, dy/dx and call that the slope, m, of the tangent at the point. Then plug the x and y of the point in to get b in y = m x + b

to get the derivative

2 x dx/dx +x dy/dx + y dx/dx - 2 y dy/dx = 0

or

2x + y = (2y-x) dy/dx

dy/dx = (2x+y)/(2y-x)

2x - 4y = -34
