I think you did the implicit differentiation wrong. Here's what I obtained:

Substitute these values in the expression above:

So now we have:

Try solving for and see if you can get an answer. - Nov 8th 2009, 01:59 PMVonNemo19

Yup Yup :3

Then the answer is -1

&& I see what I did wrong, too. I didn't take the derivative properly when I did product rule :33

Thank you very much ! =)
