    help please
    x^3 \cdot 3y^2 \frac{dy}{dx} + y^3 \cdot 3x^2 - \frac{dy}{dx}=1

    remember to use product rule on the first.

    Solve for dy/dx?

    Okay, thanks... now just to make sure I'm doing this right, how would you solve for dy/dx?

    x^3 \cdot 3y^2 \frac{dy}{dx} + y^3 \cdot 3x^2 - \frac{dy}{dx}=1

    so

     \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{1-y^3 \cdot 3x^2}{x^3 \cdot 3y^2-1}
