6) Answer:  d(y)/dx = d(2)/dx = 0


7)  x^2 + 2y^2 = 3

2x + 4y * dy/dx = 0

4y * dy/dx = -2x

dy/dx = -2x/4y = -x/2y

At the point (1, 1)

dy/dx = (-1)/(2 * 1) = -1/2

The equation of the tangent line is:

y - 1 = (-1/2)(x - 1)

y - 1 = -x/2 + 1/2

Answer: y = -x/2 + 3/2


8) g(x) = 9*f(x), f'(-6) = -6, g'(-6) = ?

g'(x) = 9 * f'(x)

g'(-6) = 9 * f'(-6)

Answer:  g'(-6) = 9 * -6 = -54


9) y = x^-9

Answer:  dy/dx = -9x^-10


10)  f(t) = t^3 + 2/t = t^3 + 2t^-1

f'(t) = 3t^2 - 2t^-2 = 3t^2 -2/t^2

At the point (-2, 3)

f'(-2) = 3*(-2)^2 - 2/(-2)^2 

Answer:  f'(-2) = 12 - 1/2 = 23/2
