Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4differentiate it and put dy/dx=0 at x=6 you will get value of m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do we have to put dy/dx = 0, how can we assume gradient of the tangent is 0?

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