take the derivative of the given equation with respect to x. And then substitute (x,y) with (0,3)

OKay

OpenStudy (mathmusician):

Would the derivative be $e ^{x}-3x ^{2}$

OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

looks good so far with respect to x so $e^x -3x^2 \frac{dx}{dx}$ dx cancels out so left with e^x-3x^2

What happened to the y

2 years ago
OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

take the derivative of y. the term y^2 is the part of left side expression.

Could you write that out for me please?

OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

$e^x -3x^2 +2y \frac{dy}{dx}=0$ derivative of constant =0 now solve for dy/dx

ummm do i just move it to the other side?(Divide)

OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

hmm well what would you divide ?

The dy/dx

2 years ago
OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

if you divide first by dy/dx you have to divide all terms at left side by dy/dx $\frac{e^x}{dy/dx} -\frac{3x^2}{dy/dx} +2y =0$ like this. looks messssy

OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

first move (e^x-3x^2) to the right side. move all the terms except dy/dx from left side.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (mathmusician):

okay so it would look $\frac{ dy }{ dx } = -(e ^{x}-3x ^{2})$like

2 years ago
OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

hmm what about 2y ?? what did you do with that ?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

it should be $2y\frac{ dy }{ dx } = -(e ^{x}-3x ^{2})$ divide both sides.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (mathmusician):

$\frac{ dy }{ dx }=-(e ^{x}-3x ^{2}+2y)$

OpenStudy (s4sensitiveandshy):

nahh i said divide 2y times dy/dx ^mutiplication do the opposite of multiplication to cancel out 2y. Don't

don't forget simple math :P

-(e^x-3x^2)/2y

Substitute x for 0 and y for 3 that's it :)
