    Huge problem with relation rates.

    Homework Statement I search all over my textbook and did not show any (simple) examples on relation rates(seriously). Well, The first problem is, x^2+y^2=25 find dy/dt when x=3. dx/dt =4 and it says find the indicated rate and assume x>0 and y>0 Homework Equations I did my best...

    Implicit differentiation

    Homework Statement I just got started on this, and am not grasping the WHOLE idea. 1.xy=25 The answer says -y/x 2.x^2+3xy+y^2=15 And this says -y^2/x^2 Homework Equations 1. dy/dx(xy)= dy/dx(25) 1=0 ??? 2.dy/dx x^2+3xy+y^2= dy/dx 15 2x+3+y(dy/dx) =0...

    Finding the equation for the tangent line.

    Homework Statement find the equation for the tangent line. 1. (e^x)(cos x) where x=0 Homework Equations plugged 0 into the equation, (e^0)(cos 0) and got 1 for the y-coordinate. so I got the points(0,1). For the slope, I derived the equation into -(e^x)(sin x). then i plugged 0 in and got 0...
