  1. I would cross-multiply, then simplify to avoid using the quotient rule to get

    36y = x^7 + 5x - 7x^6y
    36dy/dx = 7x^6 + 5 -7x^6dy/dx - y(42x^5)
    dy/dx(36 + 7x^6) = 7x^6 + 5x - 42yx^5
    dy/dx = (7x^6 + 5x - 42yx^5)/(36+7x^6)

    sub in x=1 and y = 6/43)

    I will leave the arithmetic for you
