Consider the curve C given by the equation

Consider the curve C given by the equation: C · · · √ x + √ y = √ a, where a is a constant, a > 0. Let (x0, y0) with x0 > 0, y0 > 0, be a point on C. If (x1, 0) and (0, y1) are x and y intercepts of the tangent line to C at (x0, y0), show that x1 + y1 = a.

Please state your question correctly.  The reason why you did not get an answer yesterday is because your equation is unclear to decipher.
