These two are the graphs

Did you try google?
 one year ago

yeah I couldnt find help there either, have no clue

Remember that the derivative is the slope of a line.
 one year ago

thegameishereBest 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
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and the slope of the tangent line equals the derivative
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
however I keep getting the wrong answer

That's so weird O.o

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)
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
They want g(1) and k(1)? They don't want the derivative?
 one year ago

thegameishereBest 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)
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and F'(1) is zero because thats where u have an x intercept
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and the equation simplifies to f(x)g(x)
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, so what are the graphs you posted?
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
those are the functions of f(x) and g(x) they are the functions
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So since f(1) = 1 and g(1) = 1.25, k(1) = 1 / 1.25
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
f'(1) = 2/3 since it rises 2 and runs 3 when x is 1
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I don't see what's hard about this
 one year ago

thegameishereBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How is g(1) = 1.25 when its not given
 one year ago

wioBest 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
 one year ago

wioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Then it goes through the origin
