(b) Under what conditions on x and/or y is the tangent line to this curve horizontal? Vertical?

For part A, I simplifid it to

-(2x+4/2y+7)

For part B,I am confused on what to do?

y'(2y+7)=(4-2x)

y'=(4-2x)/(2y+7) as you found:)

**drwls**, Friday, November 7, 2008 at 5:59amAssuming the y' formula is correct, the tangent is zero when y' = 0 (x = 2) and vertical when the denominator of y' is zero (y = -7/2). The corresponding y and x values can be solve for using the original equation.
