Hi!

A little help with solving this please. I'll happily accept tips on solving implicit problems, considering I am weak at them.

Thank you!

the derivative, with respect to x, of is . You do not have the "3" that was in the original term in the second part.

I don't know where that " comes from. You had already done that in first "3y^3[/tex]". The derivative, with respect to x is, in fact -4 so the left side is

. The right is 20yy' as you say so you have

Subtract 10yy' and from both sides to get

Your only error appears to be that missing "3".
