. Next take
d/dx
of both sides, then substitute
x
= 8,
y
= 4, and solve for
y
. It saves a little work
to square both sides before taking the derivative, in which case after taking the
derivative you have 2
x

y
= 4(2(

yy
). Substituting
x
= 8,
y

and solving for
y
, you get 16

so that

(If you don’t ﬁrst square both sides, then when you substitute

and multiply through by 20, you get the same thing.) The equation of the tangent
