use implicit differentiation to find dy/dx . Then evaluate the derivative function at the designated point.

log (xy)= 2; (4, 25)

log(xy) = 2

1/(xy) (y + xy') = 0

1/x + 1/y y' = 0

y' = -y/x

Or, going about it another way,

logx + logy = 2

1/x + 1/y y' = 0

y' = -y/x

So, plug in your numbers.
