Can someone describe how to solve this problem to me?
Determine a, b, and c so that the curve y=ax^2+bx+c shall be tangent to the line 3x-y=5 at (2,1) and shall also pass through (3,-1).
Thank you!
Hello, BubblegumPops!
Determine so that the curve shall be tangent
to the line at (2,1) and shall also pass through (3,-1).
Since (2,1) is on the curve: .
Since (3,-1) is on the curve: .
The line has slope 3.
The slope of the tangent to the curve: .
