Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope of the tangent line is equal to the derivative of "y"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once we know the slope, the rest is natural

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we should find the derivative of y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0practice makes perfect; the question suggests that you should be familiar with the derivative in some way; i can go thru some simple shortcuts for you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but to teach you derivatives is beyond the scope of this environment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=x^2+3x the derivative of a sum is the sum of the derivatives y' = x^2' + 3x'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the derivative of x^n = nx^{n1} for example: x^5 = 5x^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from this, what would you deduce is the derivative of x^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats where you learn about derivatives :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at any rate; if you knew the derivative got us to 2x+3; this would tell us the equation of the slope at any given point on our line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at x=0 this slope = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given a slope and a point we can construct a line: y = mx mPx + Py y = 3x 3(0) +1 y = 3x 1 looks to be it
