I'm not into this topic yet but wanted to get ahead.
Find the equation of line tangent at point (1,5):
so will this be something like:
I forgot how to do this type I know it has something to do with y = mx + b
There is a SUPER easy reason why this is not the equation of the tangent LINE. It is something important though.
You are on the right track though. However, this is one of the problems with using rules of derivatives without knowing fully why we are using them.
If we are interested in finding the equation of the line tangent to the point , then we need to find some informatinon, most importantly what is the SLOPE of the line tangent to that point. But the slope of that line (if it containts that particular point), will be the same slope of that CURVE at the point yes?
Do you know what this actually refers to?
I think ANDS' point was that it is very hard to understand what you are saying if you don't say what you mean!
What you said was
"Find the equation of line tangent at point (1,5):

"
The reasonable interpretation of "this" is that it is your answer.
