As learnt in concept ABCD



Differentiate both sides wrt.x.


y{}'=-\frac{(xy^{2}-1)}{2+x^{2}y}=\left ( \frac{1-xy^{2}}{2+x^{2}y} \right )

at (2,-2) y{}'=\frac{1-2\times (-2)^{2}}{2+2^{2}\times (-2)}=\frac{1-8}{2-8}=+\frac{7}{6}

Equation of tangent is


It doesn't pass through (-2,-7)

Concept ABCD

Slope of curve at a given point

To find slope, we differentiate with respect to x and find \frac{dy}{dx}

Eg in x^{2}-y^{2}=4
