Hi all, first time poster but if this goes well will probably be seeking out more help.
So we are doing parametric equations and I understand how to find the slope, however from their I'm totally lost. >.<
Please don't just answer, I have an exam soon and if you could explain why, it would be wonderful.
The original question is:
Find an equation of the tangent line to this curve
So I know you take the derivative of both sides to find dx/dt and dy/dt
So the slope is equal to...
The T value they give is 8/2 (4?)
Slope is undefined....
From there I have no idea
However if the slope were to work, such as with this equation...
@ t= 3
I get the slope 1/4
However, I don't know what values to put for x and y!!
Anyway. Thank you for any help.
