Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0replace x by 7 and get 5. this is the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is easier just to find the derivative using the quotient rule and then plug in 7, but is finding it using the definition. once you have the slope use the point slope formula to get your line
