So you're looking for an equation of the line tangent to the curve f(x) at x=3?

yeah but I'm not sure why I'm getting this wrong.

@akotto4897 wtf is wrong with you? Why would you call someone elses problem `so simple`. It's like someone in 5th grade calling 3rd grade math SUPER EASY! Just because you understand it doesn't mean that everyone else is on your level...

Ok that's enough of my rant :) lemme check your work a sec :3

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
lol, i appreciate that. but yes, let's begin.

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Mmm ok so your slope looks good. So what coordinate pair are we using to find our yintercept?\[\Large f(3)\quad=\quad 13e^{27}18\]Mmm ok ok I see you have the written down already :3 \[\Large y_{\tan}\quad=\quad mx+b\]So if we plug in our coordinate pair, we get something like this, yes?\[\Large 13e^{27}18\quad=\quad (234e^{27}6)\cdot 3+b\]

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
woah so the slope is good and the y too.

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh i see there's an x there.
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so would it be 247e^2718?
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
for your y_tan? or for b?
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y tan
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Hmm after you find your b value, you should plug it back into the \[\Large\bf y_{tan}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{m}x+\color{royalblue}{b}\] For our final answer, we DON'T want the coordinate pair plugged in. We're only trying to fill in these blue pieces.

so how do i get to the answer.

at first i thought it was 247e^27 6x

i just don't understand what to do at the point slope formula.

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i keep getting the answer wrong.

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\Large\bf y_{\tan}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{m}x+\color{royalblue}{b}\]Plugging in our slope,\[\Large\bf y_{\tan}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}x+\color{royalblue}{b}\]Then we plug in our coordinate pair to find b,\[\Large\bf \color{#DD4747 }{13e^{27}18}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}\cdot\color{#DD4747 }{3}+\color{royalblue}{b}\]
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
So we have some 18's cancelling out. And I think we get a b value of,\[\Large\bf \color{royalblue}{b\quad=\quad 689e^{27}}\]Something like that?

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
isn't it y(13e^2718)=234e^276x+18
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
right, yy1=m(xx1)
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so in this case, slope= 234e^276 y=13e^2718
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and x1= 3
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
No that's `pointslope` form of a line. yy1 = m( xx1) We don't want to use that. We were told to use the `slopeintercept` form of a line. y=mx+b

can we do it the way i had it please?
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah but i thought i could use that to find the equation of a tangent line

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I've been using that for other problems and it worked.
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes we can use that, so let's see if we can get it set up correctly. Lemme see if I can match what you wrote a sec :)

\[\Large\bf yy_1\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{m}(xx_1)\]\[\Large\bf yy_1\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}(xx_1)\]Then plugging in our point:\[\Large\bf y\color{#DD4747 }{(13e^{27}18)}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}(x\color{#DD4747 }{3})\]

yes correct! :)

after that I'm lost lol
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Ok so now we just need to get in into the form y=mx+b. So we need to multiply out the brackets, then we gotta isolate the y term.
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\large\bf y\color{#DD4747 }{(13e^{27}18)}\quad=\quad 234e^{27}x6x 702e^{27}+18\]I think it expands like that, yes? Give it a try :)

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yup, but i seem to be doing that wrong unfortunately.

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
wait don't we just multiply out the 6 and 6*3 only?

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and leave the
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes, true. We probably want don't want the x's expanded like that,\[\large\bf y\color{#DD4747 }{(13e^{27}18)}\quad=\quad (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\]

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
why don't we multiply 234e^27 with x?
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and then 3

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\large\bf (234e^{27}6)(x3)\quad=\\ \large\bf\quad (234e^{27}6)x(234e^{27}6)3\]And we only want to multiply out the part with the 3.
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
im so confused. i do't understand why we did this problem differently than all the others when it comes to this part.
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so for (234e^27−6)(x−3) i thought we do foil
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes, foiling should give you this,\[\large\bf 234e^{27}x6x 702e^{27}+18\]
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Are you not getting that when you foil..?
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes i have that! :)
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We don't want multiple x terms, so we'll factor an x out of each of the first two terms.\[\Large\bf =\quad \large\bf (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\]
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now what? :(
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
where does my foiling go?
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
great so we factor?
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We had this,\[\Large\bf y\color{#DD4747 }{(13e^{27}18)}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}(x\color{#DD4747 }{3})\]It foiled to give us this,\[\large\bf y(13e^{27}18)\quad=\quad 234e^{27}x6x 702e^{27}+18\]We factored out an x to give us this,\[\large\bf y(13e^{27}18)\quad=\quad (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\]
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
We finish by solving for y.

\[\large\bf y=\\\large\bf (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18+13e^{27}18\]
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
what..? :(
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
the 6 and the 18 are not like terms, we can't combine those.
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
I don't know why you insisted on using pointslope form for this one. It seems way more complicated :c
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but it's the only way for me… i have to stick to this or else i'll be completely lost in the exam
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
This one only ended up being complicated because our slope was `2 terms`. So it ended up being a ton of multiplication.

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
damn im so confused.
 one year ago

mathcalculus Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what would be he answer btw?
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\large\bf y(13e^{27}18)\quad=\quad (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\]From here: you add (13e^{27}18) to each side,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\color{orangered}{+(13e^{27}18)}\]Does that step make sense? +_+ That's how we isolate the y term.
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
From there we can drop the brackets since nothing in being applied to them, \[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18+13e^{27}18\]It looks like the 18's will cancel out,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+\cancel{18}+13e^{27}\cancel{18}\]
 one year ago

zepdrix Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
And the exponential terms ( not the one attached to the x ) are like terms, so we'll combine them,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}6)x \color{orangered}{702e^{27}+13e^{27}}\] \[\large\bf y=(234e^{27}6)x \color{orangered}{689e^{27}}\]And I think that's our final answer, assuming I didn't make any boo boos along the way.

wait which is the mx and b?

\[\large\bf y=\color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}x \color{orangered}{689e^{27}}\]\[\large\bf y=\color{royalblue}{m}x +\color{orangered}{b}\]
