Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the function f(x) = 5x^2+3, find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of f at x=1. If the equation of the tangent line is written as: y=mx+b, what are m and b? m= b=

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am going to guess that the mistake was in taking the derivative and getting \[y'=10x+3\] instead of the correct \[y'=10x\] just a guess
