find the equation of the tangent line at $(x_0 , e^{x_0})$ , then determine the line's x-intercept.
2. Use the point-slope form of a line to determine an equation for the tangent line. The form I am talking about is $y-y_0 = m(x-x_0)$. You should have values for $y_0$ and $m$.
3. Find the x-intercept of the line. In other words, set $y=0$ and solve for $x$.
