find the slope of the tangent line at the point P(1,1) on the graph of e^x-y=2x^2-y^2

  • calculus - , Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 6:00am

    What is the exponent of e: x or x-y?

    1,1 is a point on the curve of
    e^(x-y) = 2x^2 -y^2
    so I will use that.

    Differentiate both sides implicitly with respect to x (treating y as an implicit function of x) and solve for the value of dy/dx when x = 1.

    e^(x-y)*(1 - dy/dx) = 4x - 2y*dy/dx
    So at x = 1, y = 1,
    1 - dy/dx = 4 - 2 dy/dx
    dy/dx = 3
