Solution 71E

Step 1:

Tangent lines Find an equation of the line tangent to the following curves at the given point.

Step 2 :

Let us differentiate the given equation in terms of x

Now lets substitute the given points into to get the slope m

Step 3:

The equation of the tangent line is

For this we have to find the value of b.

For this we will substitute in

Therefore

Therefore
