How would you find an equation of the line tangent to f(x) = 2x^2 - 4 at teh point (3, 14) ?
If f(2) = 3 and f(prime)(2) = -1, what would be the tangent line when x = 2?
first find the slope at the point, that is, find
use that as your in the point-slope form
the tangent line will be given by:
where is the slope and is a point the line passes through, here, this is namely
here and (do you see why?)If f(2) = 3 and f(prime)(2) = -1, what would be the tangent line when x = 2?
use the same method as above
