**Reiny**, Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 11:29pmFor a vertical line, the slope would be undefined, that is,

(3x-2y)/(2x+2y) has to be undefined.

When does that happen?

When the denominator is zero, so

2x + 2y = 0

y = -x

sub into the origianal

3x^2 - 2(-x)^2 = 4x(-x) + 20

5x^2 = 20

x^2=4

x = ±2

if x=2, y = -2,

if x = -2, y = 2

points where tangent is vertical are (2,-2) and (-2,2)
