x^2 + xy + y^2 = 25

my method was to implicitely differentiate and then set the numerator = 0 to get points of horizontal asymptotes, and then set the denominator = 0 to get the points for the veritcal asymptotes.

when i use implicit differentiation i get:

y' = (-2x - y)/(x + 2y)

am i correct so far? now I am stuck because if i set the top equal to 0 i just get y = -2x. what can i do from here to solve for the points where there are both horizontal and vertical asymptotes? thanks.
