This is what I've gotten so far: 2x/9 +2y/36 dy/dx = 0

why = 0?

The derivative of 1 = 0

I do not see an equal sign in your question

outside of that your fine

were you given a radius?

the radius in the y direction would be 6 and the radius in the x direction would be 3.

you asked how to differentiate a function and now you have an equation
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
that's like differentiate f(x) = x^2 and I say 2x = 0

  • tiffany_rhodes
so dy/dx = -2x/9 * 36/2y ?
zzr0ck3r
  • zzr0ck3r
yes if you had an equation to begin with:)
primeralph
  • primeralph
yeah, but only if you equated it to zero originally.
tiffany_rhodes
  • tiffany_rhodes
yeah I did.
primeralph

Then you're good to go.
