Remember that the derivative is the slope of a line.

yes I've tried that too and I believe the slope of the line is equal to the slope of the tangent line too

and the slope of the tangent line equals the derivative

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)

thegameishere
Best Response

they want k(1)

They want g(1) and k(1)? They don't want the derivative?

thegameishere
Best Response

0
they want k(1) and k is equal to f(x)/g(x)
I got slope 2/3
for f(x)

and F'(1) is zero
because thats where u have an x intercept

thegameishere

and the equation simplifies to f(x)g(x)

over g(x)^2

Okay, so what are the graphs you posted?

thegameishere
Best Response

0
those are the functions of f(x) and g(x)
they are the functions

wio

So since f(1) = 1 and g(1) = 1.25, k(1) = 1 / 1.25

wio

f'(1) = 2/3 since it rises 2 and runs 3 when x is 1

I don't see what's hard about this

How is g(1) = 1.25 when its not given

Well, from the left side you can see the slope is 2, so it has to hit at the half way point

Then it goes through the origin

So it is rising 2/1.5
