Hi, thank you in advance for responses.

For the elliptic paraboloid $\displaystyle z=4x^2+3y^2$, find a parametric equation of the tangent line to the paraboloid at the point (-1,2,16) in the x=-1 trace.

I've got a rough idea of how to do it, but I can't quite get there. You don't need to completely solve it for me if you don't want to, but some pointers in the right direction would be wonderful.

Thanks!
