Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1take the derivative replace \(x\) by \(4\) that gives you the slope take the negative reciprocal, that give you the slope of the normal line use the point slope formula with the point \((4,6)\) to find the equation of the normal line \(y=mx+b\) then \(b\) is where it crosses the y axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where is the normal line there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what do you think is wrong with my answer? is the steps given by satelite somehow have mistakes? i just followed it

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what did you get for the slope ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1b = 46/5 .. i believe that is the correct answer now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.19.3 :)) thanks so much! help me again.. i'll post a question :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes.. divide 46 by 5 right ? then it will be 9... remainder is 15.. that will be 3.. so 9.3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol.. i got a mistake again. sorry.. yes.. 9.2
