    im not sure but i think it is because whenever i mention gradient people go on about slopes :p

    the gradient

    and that that gradient passes through that equation and i need to use the points to make and equation this is what i assume

    i think from the gradient/slope a curve, one mean the slope of the tangent line at any point of the curve

    not sure :S i get confused with them both

    wait, differentiation finds the gradient, doesnt it

    if differentiation of the curve equation finds the gradient (as you said) then will the integration of the gradient equation gives the curve equation???
