Homework Help: calculus

Posted by erika on Thursday, January 3, 2013 at 10:55pm.

The ellipse x^2+3y^3=13, has two points when x+-1

. Find the slope of the ellipse at both these points.
2. Thoroughly explain the method you used to find the slope in part 1. What are the strengths
and weaknesses of the method you used?
3. Explain whether your method will work to find the slope of x^2+xy+y^2=3 at points -1, 2 and
(-1, -1 . If it succeeds, please show your work as you find these two slopes. If your method fails,
thatís fine, just explain thoroughly why it failed.
