1. Take its derivative: \[dy/dx = -e ^{x}/x ^{2} + e ^{x}/x\]
Substitute x = 1
Whatever value you obtain for dy/dx after the substitution, let that represent your m value for the equation y = mx+c

i got 0 as the slope but then when i plug it in i still get the wrong answer
To solve for the constant 'c', just substitute: x = 1 y = e m =dy/dx (Its numerical value that you obtained) Then, for your final sub in the c and m values
Double check to make sure my derivative is correct
But i'm quite sure the steps are correct though.
ok i got it thanks
Using the derivative presented above, I also get 0 as it's derivative at x=1. If this is the case then the equation of the tangent line at the point (1,e) on the original curve should be y=e.
