  • $\large\frac{d}{dx}$$(x^n)=nx^{n-1}$
Step 1:
The equation of the curve $2y+x^2=3$
Differentiating with respect to $x$
$\large\frac{dy}{dx}$ at $(1,1)=-1$=Slope of tangent.
Step 2:
Since slope of normal $=\large\frac{1}{slope \;of\; tangent}$$=1$
The equation of the normal is
$y-y_1$=Slope of normal$(x-x_1)$
$y-1=1.(x-1)$ or $y-1=x-1$
Part (B) is the correct answer.
