Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope will be the derivative and you equate it to 12/25 Then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y' = 3(x  4)  3x * 1  (x  4)^2 = 12  (x  4)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now this equlas 12/25 so we have 12 12  =  (x  4)^2 25 Solve this for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as the numerators are both the same we can write (x  4)^2 = 25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now its easy once you have found the 2 values of x plug them into the original function to find the yvalues of the 2 points.
