I'm good in differentiating... but my problem is that if the equation to be differentiated is not given at the start like this worded problem... I know that the eq of circle. is (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 =r^2.... but I don't know how to use the given... line y=-x ..... and how to substitute this given line in this equation... can someone give me the proper equation for this problem??.. don't worry I just need the first equation... I will be the one to differentiate .

The distance from (h, -h) to (0, 0) is, of course, so : . Multiplying that out, . Then a wonderful thing happens - all those terms cancel! . Now, . Differentiating with respect to x, the constant, h, will disappear.
