hey can someone help me with these i need help

Consider the curve given by x2 + sin(xy) + 3y2 = C, where C is a constant. The point (1, 1) lies on this curve. Use the tangent line approximation to approximate the y-coordinate when x = 1.01.

1. x2 + sin(xy) + 3y2 = C
solve for dy/dx
2x+cos(xy)xdy/dx+6ydy/dx=0

dy = -2x/(cos(xy)x+6y) * dx

dy= -2*1/(cos(1*1) + 6) dx
but dx= .001
then dy= -.02/(.540+6)= -0.00305810398
so y= 1-dy= 0.996941896
