find the slope of that point by taking the derivative
Can I have a pic of tangent of 6 at point (3,9)
I need it badly...I would really appreciate it
what is the function of the line
okay ill walk you through it
to find the slope at any point we first take the derivative: d/dx(Y) = d/dx(X^2) = 2X good so far?
I don't get that...
have you learned derivatives yet
A while ago
Can. Have a pic of the function and tangent line
A site that u can graph it on is desmos.com
ok, well its just the power rule the derivative of x^a where a is some power is a*x^(a-1) so here a = 2 so its 2*x^(2-1) = 2x and im going to show you how to do it not draw it for you :)
Ya ok...but I need to know where the y intercept of the tangent line is
thasts fine we will get to that
Can u figure it out and tell me
so like we said the slope at any point is 2*x. So to find the slope of the tangent linet at (3,9) we plug in the x coordinate 3 into 2*x and obviously get 6. Good?
I will figure the steps out on my own
Is that ok?
so now the slope is 6: use y = mx + b form to find the answer. since the line hits (3,9) you can use x = 3, y = 9 and solve for b. then you should be able to graph a line
Bt y=x^2 is a quadratic
yes but the tangent line is linear
Ok...I am bit in a rush so can u tell me the answer and I will figure it out later
This is exactly how to find the line you are supposed to draw, just do it "so now the slope is 6: use y = mx + b form to find the answer. since the line hits (3,9) you can use x = 3, y = 9 and solve for b. then you should be able to graph a line"
your welcome. hope it helped :)
