First step: Take derivative with respect to x on both sides of the equation.
\[ (x^2+2xy-y^2+x)'=(2)'\] ----- \[(x^2+2xy-y^2+x)'=(x^2)'+(2xy)'-(y^2)'+(x)'=....\] \[\text{Here you will need power rule for } (x^2)'\] \[\text{You will need constant multiple rule along with product rule for } (2xy)'\] \[\text{You will need chain rule for } (y^2)'\] \[\text{You will need to know that }(x)'=1 \text{ for the } (x)' \text{part}\] ---- \[(2)'=....\] You should know the derivative of a constant. :) ----
i understand the steps i just cannot put 2 and 2 together and get the correct final answer. i got 1/3 as the slope, is the correct?

Hmm...Not getting 1/3.... Show me your work so I can see where you messed up. You can do it one line at a time if you want.
\[\text{What did you get when you did } (2xy)' \text{ and } (y^2)' ?\]
(2xy)' = dy/dx 2y +2x dy/dx and (y^2)' = -2y
Looks incorrect for both
\[(2xy)' =2(xy)' \text{ By constant multiple rule}\] \[2(xy)'=2[xy]'=2[(x)'y+x(y)'] \text{ By product rule }\]
\[(y^n)'=n y ^{n-1} y' \text{ By chain rule } \]
