Y^2 + 2XY^2 - 3X +1 = 0

I know you need to differentiate just as you would with implicit, but you need to insert either (dx/dt) or (dy/dt) with the respective x, y terms. I am confused what to insert for the 2nd term which is using the product rule. I am thinking to pull the 2 in front of the term to multiply, but I don't know whether to put (1) or (dx/dt) for the x term and the same for they y term. Please help!
