Homework Help: calculus; implicit differentiation

Posted by Kim on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 11:18pm.

Use implicit differentiation to find the slope of the tangent line to the curve at the point (4,1)

-1x^2 - 4xy + 3y^3 = -29

I differentiated both sides and solved for dy/dx and got 2x-4y/9y^2-4x. Then I plugged in X and Y and got -4/7

but when i enter my answer it's wrong. What is the right answer? Where did I go wrong?
