    \[x^3 + y^3 = 1\] \[3x^2+3y^2y'=0\] \[y'=-\frac{x^2}{y^2}\]

    \[y''=\frac{2xy^2-2x^2yy'}{y^4}\] by the quotient rule

    replace \(y'\) by \(-\frac{x^2}{y^2}\) in the above, do some algebra and get the solution

    multiply top and bottom by \(y^2)\] so clear the fraction then cancel some y's

    typo there i lost the minus sign, should be \[y''=\frac{2xy^2+2x^2y\times \frac{x^2}{y^2}}{y^4}\]

    \[y''=\frac{2xy^4+2x^4y}{y^6}\] \[y''=\frac{2xy^3+2x^4}{y^5}\] \[y''=\frac{2x(y^3+x^3)}{y^5}\] \[y''=\frac{2x}{y^5}\] since \(x^36y^3=1\)

    rather since \(x^3+y^3=1\)
