# Math Help - Tangent line to curve

1. ## Tangent line to curve

How to find the tangent line to the curve g(t) = (t + 1, t^2 + 1, t^3 + 1)
at the point (0, 2, 0)?

This probably belongs in the Calculus forum.

$g'(t)=(1,2t,3t^2)$

The value of $t$ that yields $g(t)=(0,2,0)$ is $t=-1$.

So evaluating $g'(-1)$ ...
