i don't know how or what to starts
Find the slope of the tangent line to the curve 4x^2+3xy+3y^3=251 at the point (4,5)

Calculus AP need help!  Steve, Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 11:41am
sure you know where to start. slope means get a derivative. In this case, use implicit differentiation to get
8x + 3y + 3xy' + 9y^2*y' = 0
y'(3x+9y^2) = (8x+3y)
y' = (8x+3y)/(3x+9y^2)
y' at (4,5) = 47/213 (?? wak!! ??)
