(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the coordinates of the points on these curves at which the gradient has the given values.

y=1/3x^(3/2)-x^(1/2), gradient=3/4

3. The attempt at a solution

Basically the problem I have isn't really finding the answer because.....

x^(1/2)-x^-(1/2)=6/4[/b] and then from here I just used trial and error to find 4, but I want to know how I would follow it through with the algebra, i.e. only has x on one side as one term e.g. x= ans.

Thanks in advance,
