find the slope of the tangent to the curve:

y^2=x^3/xy

• Calc -

I will assume you meant

y^2 = x^3/(xy)

then ...

y^2 = x^2/y
y^3 = x^2
3y^2 dy/dx = 2x
dy/dx = 2x/(3y^2)

Find the equation of the line tangent to the curve at (5, -3) (x-2)^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?
