Problem 78E

Tangent lines for a hyperbola Find an equation of the line tangent to the hyperbola $$x^2/a^2 - y^2/b^2 = 1$$ at the point $$(x_0, y_0)$$.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 78E
Step 1:

To find the tangent line at a point, first we need to find the slope() at the point.

Differentiating  with respect to x to obtain , we get

Using the above result, the slope(m) at point is

Step 2 of 2
