Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So you're looking for an equation of the line tangent to the curve f(x) at x=3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok that's enough of my rant :) lemme check your work a sec :3

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Mmm 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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i see there's an x there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be 247e^2718?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for your y_tan? or for b?

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do i get to the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at first i thought it was 247e^27 6x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just don't understand what to do at the point slope formula.

Best 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,\[\Large\bf \color{#DD4747 }{13e^{27}18}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}\cdot\color{#DD4747 }{3}+\color{royalblue}{b}\]

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't it y(13e^2718)=234e^276x+18

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, yy1=m(xx1)

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

zepdrix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can we do it the way i had it please?

mathcalculus

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

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've been using that for other problems and it worked.

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes 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 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large\bf yy_1\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{m}(xx_1)\]\[\Large\bf yy_1\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}(xx_1)\]Then plugging in our point:\[\Large\bf y\color{#DD4747 }{(13e^{27}18)}\quad=\quad \color{royalblue}{(234e^{27}6)}(x\color{#DD4747 }{3})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0after that I'm lost lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok 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.

Best 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 :)

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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why don't we multiply 234e^27 with x?

zepdrix

Best 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.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for (234e^27−6)(x−3) i thought we do foil

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

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Are you not getting that when you foil..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i have that! :)

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

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

mathcalculus

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great so we factor?

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We 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,\[\large\bf y(13e^{27}18)\quad=\quad (234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+18\]

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the 6 and the 18 are not like terms, we can't combine those.

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

mathcalculus

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

zepdrix

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would be he answer btw?

zepdrix

Best 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.

zepdrix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2From 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,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}6)x 702e^{27}+\cancel{18}+13e^{27}\cancel{18}\]

zepdrix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2And 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.
