    Trust me, you haven't given me a hard time at all. I could point you to a thread or two where it's been pretty slow going.

    You're very welcome. Have a good one!

    Please in future post the entire question.

    You are asked "Which of the following is the equation of the tangent ..."

    But you do not give the options.

    It is much easier to eliminate candidates than to find the equation from scratch.

    I will do that next time.. sorry. I just wanted to learn how to do it without depending on a calculator/answer choices. These types of questions weren't even on the test today!
