For a particular value of m, the tangent of the graph y = f(x) at x = 6 passes through the origin. Find this value of m

differentiate it and put dy/dx=0 at x=6 you will get value of m

why do we have to put dy/dx = 0, how can we assume gradient of the tangent is 0?

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
well you can find it other way too your gradient needs to be passing through (0,0)

I found m=0, is it correct

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
yes , its correct then only its tangent will pass through origin cuz you will get tangent as dy/dx=3x

is m=1/6 also correct?

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
no, cuz then tangent will not pass through origin
