yeah I couldnt find help there either, have no clue

Remember that the derivative is the slope of a line.

Hmmm

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes I've tried that too and I believe the slope of the line is equal to the slope of the tangent line too
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and the slope of the tangent line equals the derivative

however I keep getting the wrong answer

Do they want you to get the derivative at certain points or what?

I got 2/3 for prime but whats the te value of g(1)
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
they want k(1)
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
They want g(1) and k(1)? They don't want the derivative?
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
they want k(1) and k is equal to f(x)/g(x) I got slope 2/3 for f(x)
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and F'(1) is zero because thats where u have an x intercept
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and the equation simplifies to f(x)g(x)
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
over g(x)^2

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, so what are the graphs you posted?
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
those are the functions of f(x) and g(x) they are the functions
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So since f(1) = 1 and g(1) = 1.25, k(1) = 1 / 1.25
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
f'(1) = 2/3 since it rises 2 and runs 3 when x is 1
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I don't see what's hard about this
 2 years ago

thegameishere Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How is g(1) = 1.25 when its not given
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Well, from the left side you can see the slope is 2, so it has to hit at the half way point
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Then it goes through the origin
 2 years ago

wio Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So it is rising 2/1.5
