## anonymous one year ago Find an equation of the tangent line to the curve at the given point. y= x^(1/2), (1,1)

1. freckles

So you need to differentiate y=x^(1/2) have you done that yet?

2. freckles

$\text{ the tangent line to } f \text{ at } (a,f(a)) \text{ is } y-f(a)=f'(a)(x-a)$

1/2(x^(1/2)) is the derivitive

4. anonymous

Got it, Thank you!

5. freckles

oh you got it ? you need no more help?

6. freckles

that is $y'=\frac{1}{2 x^{\frac{1}{2}}}$?

7. anonymous

Thats the same thing I got, thank you
