Tangent lines Find an equation of the line tangent to the following curves at the given point. Check your work with a graphing utility.
In this problem we have to find the equation of the line tangent to at the point
First let us find the slope of
Differentiate both sides with respect to x,
Therefore slope of is
Now compute slope of at
Finally, equation of tangent line is .
