Finding two points where slope of tangent is 16 given implicit differentiation

Consider the unit circle : x2+y2=1
a) Use implicit differentiation to find y'=dy/dx
b) Find the two points where the slope of the tangent is 16:
the point with the larger x coordinate is: (?,?)
the point with the smaller x coordinate is: (?,?)

For a), I used implicit differentiation and got y'=-x/y but am stuck on how to find the answers for step b
