Hi I have a Calc 2 question...
Assume that the continuously differentiable vectorbased function r(t) = (x(t),y(t)), a < t < b
and models a level curve of the real valued function
f(x,y) = y^2 + x^2y2x^4+3
also assume that r(1) = (1,1) Find a vector model for the tangent line to r(t) at r(1).
I just have no idea where to start with this any help is appreciated thanks.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should get the concepts clear at first. Level curve means there is a constant c so that \[\forall t \in (a,b): f(x(t), y(t)) = c\] So by inserting the given starting point you can calculate the constant c.
