this is a tedious question. you wlll need to find the slope of PQ you know P (1, 1) and you know that for Q, x will take s lot of different values so for the function \[f(x) = \frac{5x}{3 + 2x}\] create a table fo values x: 1.1 1.01 1.001 1.0001 ------------------------------------------- f(x) 1.05769 1,00598 then use the slope formula then as P and Q get closer together... to slope of the secant gets closer to the slope of the tangent hope this helps. \[m = \frac{1.05769 - 1}{1.1 - 1}.... m = 0.5769\] you need to repeat the process for each x value
