**Steve**, Monday, October 31, 2011 at 11:50amjust plug and chug:

4(x^2 + y^2)(2x + 2yy') = 9(2x - 2yy')

Now, the tangent is horizontal when y' = 0

4(x^2 + y^2)(2x) = 9(2x)

8x^3 + 8xy^2 = 18x

2x(4x^2 + 4y^2 - 9) = 0

So, either x=0

substitute back into original equation:

2y^4 = -9y^2

y=0

or,

4x^2 + 4y^2 = 9

x^2 = (9 - 4y^2)/4

Substitute that back into the original equation

2((9 - 4y^2)/4 + y^2)^2 = 9((9 - 4y^2)/4 - y^2)

Expand the binomial and solve for y^2
