I solved the first part and got (1/2, 1/4), but I have no idea how to tackle the second part. Help is much appreciated.

**Damon**, Monday, May 6, 2013 at 8:22pmdy/dt = dy/dx * dx/dt

but

dy/dx = 2x

so

dy/dt = 2 x dx/dt

so when 2 x = 1 (when the slope = 1 of course)

x = 1/2 then y = 1/4

x = sin t

when is sin t = 1/2

when t = 30 degrees or pi/6 radians

dx/dt = cos t = cos 30 = (sqrt 3 )/ 2

dy/dt = 2 sin t cos t = 2(1/2)(sqrt 3/2) sure enough
