last calc question, i promise!

given the curve x + xy + 2y^2 = 6...
a. find an expression for the slope of the curve.
i got (1y)/(x + 4y) as my answer.
b. write an equation for the line tangent to the curve at the point (2,1).
i got y = (1/3)x + (5/3).
but i didn't any answer for c!
c. find the coordinates of all other points on this curve with slopes equal to the the slope at (2,1).
do i just set (1y)/(x+4y) equal to 1/3?

i mean: do i just set (1y)/(x+4y) equal to 1/3 AND use the original formula to come up with an answer? like a twovariable system?

ALSO ALSO ALSO  on my first calc question (a couple posts down!), i added more to the problem that i forgot, so i need help with that too.

a) is correct
b) correct
c) yes, set (1y)/(x+4y) equal to 1/3
solving this I got x = 3y
sub that back into the original equation to get after simplifying
y^2 + 2y  3 = 0
(y+3)(y1) = 0
y = 3 or y = 1
but those back into x=3y for
x =6 or x = 4
so the other points are (6,3) and (4,1)
you better check my math, it is getting late here.

the second one would be x = 2, resulting in the original point (2,1), i think. but other than that, thank you sooooo much!

Find the equation of the line tangent to the curve at (5, 3) (x2)^2 + (y+3)^2 = 9 I solved the derivative to be dy/dx = ((2x+4)/ (2y+6)) when i plugged in the points (5, 3) I got the slope as 6/0...How is this possible?
