1. Show that curve has no tangent parallel to y axis.
Well, when thats the case, dy/dx = 0.
Well you were meant to do
2xy - 3 = 0 and sub into original equation to show there is no solution.
And my question is Why? Do you always do 1/(dy/dx) and equate that to 0 to find a line parallel to y axis? Why do you do that?
