Consider the curve defined by 2y^3+6X^2(y)- 12x^2 +6y=1 .
a. Show that dy/dx= (4x-2xy)/(x^2+y^2+1)
b. Write an equation of each horizontal tangent line to the curve.
c. The line through the origin with slope -1 is tangent to the curve at point P. Find the x – and y – coordinates of point P.

    If I read your equation as
    2y^3 + (6x^2)(y) - 12x^2 + 6y = 1
    then your dy/dx is not correct

    I get:
    8y^2 dy/dx + 6x^2 dy/dx + 12xy - 24x + 6dy/dx = 0
    dy/dx(8y^2 + 6x^2 + 6) = 24x - 12xy
    dy/dx = 12x(2 - y)/(2(4y^2 + 3x^2 + 3) )
    = 6x(2-y)/(4y^2 + 3x^2 + 3)

    Please check before I proceed

    This is what I found in the paper though.
