The tangent at (2,2) to the curve y=x/(x-1) meets the axis at M. find the coordinates of M?
does anyone know the answer please tell me.

does any1 noee the answer pleaseee tell meeee
</H1> The derivative of is
Evaluating this at gives
Using and , we have:
So the equation of the tangent line is .
This intersects the x-axis at and the y-axis at .
