Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first you the yvalue when x=0(so y=4) and then when you find the equation of the tangent at any piont (aka, the slope) you use the slope, and your x and y value and sub them into the y=mx+b eqn to get it or you can use slope=(4y)/(ox)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0only one problem. we're looking for the equation of a straight line. so it couldn't have any squared values in it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just get the derivative using product rule, then sub 0 in for x and find the slope at that point, and then use y=mx+b, no big.
