I am given this problem to do but I'm not absolutely sure how to get through it. The way I would do is to find y' in terms of x's and y's and then plugin the point (1,2) and then take the derivative again and see if y'' is positve (curve up) or negative (curve down). Is this the best way to go about this problem or is it completely wrong or what?
