    f(x) = \[f(x) = 36xsin(17x) + 306\sqrt{3}x^2 -33\]

    \[\frac{ f(x) - (-33)}{ x-0 } = f'(x)\]

    that is the derivative formula at x=0; X=0 is your answer

    is it? the answers says that x = 5Pi/102 and 7Pi/102

    alright Plug in either 5pi/102 or 7pi/102 in f(x) and see if you get -33.

    the original question was find the x coordinates of all points on the curve \[y = 36xsin(17x) + 306\sqrt{3}x^2 -33\] with a domain of \[\frac{ \Pi }{ 34 } < x < \frac{ 3\Pi }{ 34 }\] where to tangent line passes through the point P(0, -33)

    so im not sure if the rise/run formula is the right thing to do

    also the point (0, -33) is actually not on the curve, but this line is touching points of the curve somewhere

    which is where answer x= 5Pi/102 and 7Pi/102 comes from

    m = m \[\frac{ f(x) - (-33) }{ x - 0} = f'(x)\] \[\frac{ (36xsin(17x) + 306\sqrt{3}x^2 -33) - (-33) }{x } = 612xcos(17x) + 36\sin(17x) + 712\sqrt{3}x\]

    the slope is 0; you just have to use the x in the denominator to cancel the xs in the numerator and take the limit of that as x approaches 0

    0 = f'(x) 0 = \[0 = 612xcos(17x) + 36\sin(17x) + 712\sqrt{3}x\]

    on the pdf file, it should not be 5pi + or - 12kpi; it should be 5pi+12kpi or x=-5pi+12kpi since cos(-a)=cos(a); it is 2kpi + or - a with a being 5pi/6 in our case... any questions??

    no; im trying to find k. x should be in a certain range. so if x is between pi/34 and 3pi/34 then (pi/34)<x<(3pi/34). this will help you find an interval for k so that your x is in the right range or domain if you want to call it that... now k should be an integer so you look at the interval of k and decide which integers are inside that interval... if you do this for 12kpi-5pi; you should get k=1... pi/34<=(1/102)(12kpi-5pi)<=3pi/4... try it
