Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pointslope form for algebra is this:\[yy_1=m(xx_1)\]now in calculus we learn that slope of the tangent at a point 'a' is the derivative at that point\[m=f'(a)\]so we need the coordinates of the point\[(x_1,y_1)\]and the value of the derivative \[f'(x_1)\]then we can use the modified pointslope form\[yy_1=f'(x_1)(xx_1)\]
