A the slope of the curve
B the equation of the tangent
C. the equation of the normal
C the equation of the normal draw graph of the curve, tangent line, and normal line in the same square viewing window.
y= 1/(x-1) at x=2.
I have some understand of the slope of a curve. The more complicated formula, because I don't know where to find the simpler one (please help with that) below
[tex]m= (f(a+h)- f(a))/h
I understand that normal and tangent have opposite slopes. HEY MY MISSING GAME BOY!!! That's cool. It's been lost for 2 years.
Anyway, they have reciprocal slopes.
According the example for the tangent of a curve, plugging in 2 as 'a' and then I have trouble. Something like the whole top row gets put into the 'x' in the equation 1/(x-1). How does that work?
