Here is the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the equation of the line which is tangent to the curve at the point (1,3): 8x^3y^2 + x^2y^5 + 6 = 4y^4 - 3x^4

Here is what I've done so far (I'm stuck now):

(24x^2)(y^2) + (8x^3)(2y dy/dx) + (2x)(y^5) + (x^2)(5y^4 dy/dx) = (16y^3 dy/dx) + 12x^3

Where do I go from here? Collect like terms? Any help isgreatlyappreciated.
