I attached the question number. I found the answer to A and B but I'm stuck on C.
For B I got y=x+7
but the tangent line for equation is 3x^2 -2x -4
Thank you.
Oh, dear. is a parabola, NOT any line at all! What you mean is that the derivative of so gives the slope of the tangent line.
Given that, at x= a, the derivative is and the value is . That means that the equation of the tangent line, at x= a, is . Saying that line goes through (0, -8) mean that x= 0, y= -8 makes that a true equation: solve .
