Well, the hardest part is remembering that

If you've got this in your head, finding dy/dx should be fairly easy...

To simplify matters though, I will turn 1/4 into the variable n...

This means that:

Also...

Now, since n=1/4:

Which means that:

This can be made to look prettier...

And presto!!
