    Can someone confirm if I did this implicit differentiation problem correctly?

    Can someone confirm if I did this implicit differentiation problem correctly?

    Question:
    Find dy/dx in x^2 + y^3 = 1

    My work is attached.

    If someone could confirm that I have the right answer, it would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: Actually, having looked over the problem again, I've come up with a revision to my work (mywork2.pdf).
