Determine the slope of the line 6x+2y=1
Slope of a line perpendicular to 6x+2y=1 is the opposite reciprocal of the line's slope.
Set the derivative of the curve equal to the opposite reciprocal value and solve for x ... then sub the value found for x into the curve's equation to determine the y-coordinate.
