I have a parametrically defined curve where i am trying to find the second derivative.
here is the problem:
I need to find the equation for the tangent line to the curve at the point defined by t = 1
the dirivitive of x =
the dirivitive of y =
then, i evaluate t = 1 by plugging it into
Sorry having some formatting issues below i hope you can read it..
after plugging in 1 for t
I get a slope of -1
so, then i need to take a second derivative
for the numerator its just 1
for the denominator its the derivative of x =
if so how do i evaluate that?
