comment Identifying inflection points and critical points
There I plugged the values back into the original to get the points, do they look correct? Also, when should I know when to check for asymptotes?

@AndréNicolas Good catch, you have a good eye.

Plug them back into the derivative or the original equation?

Can you explain the second part of that? Regarding the point (x,y)? I ended up with x = 6.

comment How do I set up this related rates problem?
Thank you for all the help thus far, I'll have to look over implicit differentiation more. I don't think I'll have enough time prior to the test, but I'll be back this week so at least I know it even if it isn't in time for the test. (going to delete some prior comments to keep this from becoming too long.) I need to cover one last topic before I take the test which I'll post about shortly.

Thanks for commenting, I'll need to look over implicit differentiation before coming back and giving this a try. I'll be back though (likely later this week -- not in time for the test though). Luckily I believe there will only be one or two implicit problems on the test. Expect a comment later this week when I come back. (I have to shift focus to one last topic before I take the test)

My issue here is I don't understand implicit differentiation well enough, I need to go back and go over it before I can go further with this question apparently. As far as the equation, it should be more along the lines of $x^2 + y^2 = c^2$ I suppose
