Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if we take the derivative of x^3+y^33x^2y3=0 you get: (using the product rule) 3x^2 + 3y^2*y'6x*y3x^2y'0= 0 rearranging for y': 3y^2*y'  3x^2y' = 3x^2 +6x*y y' (3y^23x^2) = 3x^2 +6x*y y' = (3x^2 +6x*y)/(3y^23x^2) now you have the expression for y'. you should know that when the derivative of a function is 0, it is either a max or a min (which I'm guessing are "extrema")
