Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y=mx+b <\text{ line} \] m=f ' (x=a)=f ' (x=0)=f ' (0) You need to find f ' (x). Then evaluate f ' (x) at x=0. y=f ' (0) x + b We still need to find b though. But we are given a point on this line (0,f(0)) What is f(0)? We will plug in what we know to find what b is: f(0)=f ' (0) * 0 +b f(0)=b SO great.We have the tangent line here at x=0 is y=f ' (0) x + f(0)
