√(xy) = 6/x

xy      = (6/x)²

xy      = 36/x²

y      = 36/x =36x⁻¹ 

  dy     =- 36 x-² = -36 /x²                                                                                                                                             dx

derivative at (4,1)= -36/4² =-9

Equation of tangent

y - y1=m(x - x1)

y - 1  = -9 (x - 4)

y - 1  = -9 x + 36

     y  = -9 x + 37
