I got the derivative already: y' = (2xy^2  y)/(2x^2 * y + x) ...=1 so how do I solve for those points?

I think you substitute 1 for all values of y.

Then you solve. I think. Check your answers afterwards to see it I was right.

x^2+y^2=sqrt(2) 2x+2yy'=0 y'=1 because the slope=1 2x2y=0 x=y so we have to equations x=y x^2+y^2=sqrt2
