y=x^2/x+1 find all x values at which the tangent line is parallel to the line y=x after you find the quotient of the problem how do you determine if its parallel to y=x im at x^2+2x-1/x^2+2x+1

sorry the numerator is x^2+1 i forgot to put the one in

does that equal zero

This is a false statement. Thus, there is no tangent line to this graph parallel to the line . --Chris
ooh because in the back of the book the answer it gave was 0 along those lines if you wanted dy/dx to pass through the orgin what does it equal to
i think by zero it means there isnt any thanks alot
