I AM CERTAIN THAT NO ONE WILL ANSWER THIS QUESTION... Suppose that l be a line through the points (0,3)and (5,-2) and tangent to the graph of the function \[F(x)=\frac{ x^2-p }{ 3x+1 }\] where ‘p’ is real number. What is the equation of a line parallel to l and tangent to the graph of F. A) 4x+4y+7 = 0 B) 9x+9y+37 = 0 C) x+y-3 = 0 D) 4x+6y-37 = 0

    m= -2-3/5-0 = -1 the equation will be y-3= -1(x-0) x+y-3 =0

    solve y=3-x=F(x)=.... u get two roots of x, equate them because the line is tangent and can have only one intersection point. from this i got p=-7. now answer can only be either A or B so solving both of them with F(x), gave only B) option with one intersection point, A) doesn't even intersect.

    Here is the answer

    First of all what you have to do is finding l so as to get p \[l:\frac{ y-3 }{ x-0 }=\frac{ -2-3 }{ 5-0 }\] \[l:y=-x+3\]thus \[F(x)=\frac{ x^2-p }{ 3x+1} =-x+3=y\]simplifying the above expression \[4x^{2}-8x-p-3=0\]Now since l is tangent to F(x), the quadratic equation above has only one solution. That means \[b^{2}-4ac=0\] \[(-8)^{2}-4(4)(-p-3)=0\]thus \[(-8)^{2}-4(4)(-p-3)=0\]\[p=-7\]Now we get F(x) to be \[F(x)=\frac{ x^2+7 }{ 3x+1 }\]Therefore lets solve F’(x)=-1 so as to get the coordinate of the unknown line. \[F'(x)=\frac{ 2x(3x+1)-3(x^{2}+7) }{ (3x+1)^2 }=-1\] \[3x^{2}+2x-21=-9x^{2}-6x-1\] \[12x^{2}+8x-20=0\]thus \[x=1 or x=\frac{ -5 }{ 3 }\]and \[F(1)=2 and F(\frac{ -5 }{ 3 })=\frac{ -22 }{ 9 }\]Thus we got this two points (1,2) and (-5/3,-22/9). The two possible lines therefore are \[\frac{ y-2 }{ x-1 }=-1{\rightarrow}y=-x+3\]w/c is the given line l. And \[\frac{ y-(-\frac{ 22 }{9 }) }{ x-(-\frac{ 5 }{ 3 })}=-1{\rightarrow}9y+9x+37=0\]w/c is the answer.

    why f'(x) = -1 ?

    b/c the slope at that point is -1

    Because the line l and the required line are parallel
