Use implicit differentiation to find the equation of the tangent line at a point

http://integralcalc.com/Subscribe :) http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=theintegralcalcLearn how to use implicit differentiation to calculate the equation of the tangent to the curve at a specific point. Use implicit differentiation to find the first derivative of y, or y', or y prime, then plug the given point into the first derivative to get the slope of the tangent line, m. Plug the slope and the given point into the point-slope formula for the equation of the line, and simplify to get the equation of the tangent line to the curve at that point.
