Find an equation of the tangent line to the graph of y = g(x) at x = 5 if g(5) = −3 and g'(5) = 4.
I know this is supposed to be easy, but I don't really know where to start. If someone could just hint at what to do that would be great.
Find an equation of the tangent line to the graph of y = g(x) at x = 5 if g(5) = −3 and g'(5) = 4.
I know this is supposed to be easy, but I don't really know where to start. If someone could just hint at what to do that would be great.
Let's break it down:
Given:
g(5) = -3 ---- We have the point (5,-3)
g'(5) = 4 ---- The slope at x=5 is 4
We have to find the tangent line at x=5.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you need any more help or if you would like for me to go further!
