so dy/dt=4 cm/s

i diffeientate the curve equation with respect to time to get

dy/dt=(3x^2/2(17+x^3)^1/2)dx/dt

i want to find dx/dt so i put 4 cm/s in for dy/dt and 4 for x (given by the point (4,9)) and then i solve for dx/dt, but i am not coming up with the right answer. please tell me what i am doing wrong.
