a. Show that dy/dx= (4x-2xy)/(x^2+y^2+1)

b. Write an equation of each horizontal tangent line to the curve.

c. The line through the origin with slope -1 is tangent to the curve at point P. Find the x – and y – coordinates of point P.

**Reiny**, Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 8:13amIf I read your equation as

2y^3 + (6x^2)(y) - 12x^2 + 6y = 1

then your dy/dx is not correct

I get:

8y^2 dy/dx + 6x^2 dy/dx + 12xy - 24x + 6dy/dx = 0

dy/dx(8y^2 + 6x^2 + 6) = 24x - 12xy

dy/dx = 12x(2 - y)/(2(4y^2 + 3x^2 + 3) )

= 6x(2-y)/(4y^2 + 3x^2 + 3)

Please check before I proceed
