Finding the equation of tangent and normal
I have the curve C with equation
First need to find equation of the tangent to C at the point where x = 4, and then the equation of the normal to C at the point where x = 4.
All of the questions on my past exam papers are relatively simple however this one seems to be more challenging.
To tell you my working thus far I differentiated the curve to get and rearranged it into the form of
And noted that if x was equal to 4, then I would have
which can be written as 9 + 2, which is 11.
I'm not sure what that information is telling me, let alone if it is correct or not. Could you please help?
