    (2/3) * x^-(1/3) + (2/3) * y^-(1/3) * (dy/dx) = 0 dy/dx = -x^(-1/3) / y^(-1/3)

    i filled in both x and y. and got a number. i used that as my slope in the equation y-y1=m(x-x1)

    you get dy/dx = - (3sqrt(3))^(-1/3)

    mm i ges -0.577 in fact

    and x1 = -3sqrt(3) y1 = 1...

    dy/dx = -x^(-1/3) / y^(-1/3) i replaced x and y with given points in this, and got -1.732

    dy/dx = -(3sqrt(3))^(-1/3) / 1

    dy/dx = -(3sqrt(3))^(-1/3) i get -0.577

    ok. go on with that then. what is the final answer?

    need an equation in y= form

    y =1 -0.577(x+3sqrt(3)) y= 1 -0.577x -3 y = -0.577x -2

    in fact dy/dx = -1/sqrt(3) so : y = -x/sqrt(3) -2

    \[y = \frac{ -x }{ \sqrt{3} } -2\]

    if we plug x = -3sqrt(3) we get y = 1 right ?
