In the assifnments from this course on the 1 problem set, in exercise 3 I simply dont understand what I'm doing wrong. y = 1000 - x^2 y' = -2x I need to find the line that is tangent to y and that also passes through (0,1100). I get y-yo=y'(xo)(x-xo) But i dont know (xo,yo) Please help Original question: 3. On the planet Quirk, a cell phone tower is a 100-foot pole on top of a green mound 1000 feet tall whose outline is described by the parabolic equation y = 1000 − x^2 . An ant climbs up the mound starting from ground level (y = 0). At what height y does the ant begin to see the tower?
