Description
Question 3.2 #51 The key to this question is to try to calculate the slope of the tangent in two different ways. Given a tangent line that passes though he poit (1,2), suppose that it a touches the curve at the point of tangency a,a+1 . Our goal is to find what a could be. Let’s calculate the slope of the tangent at x = a on the curve in two ways. • First, we have the correspondence that the slope of the tangent at x = a 0 is the derivative y (a). 0 (x+1)−x 1 y (x) = (x+1)2 = (x+1)2 0 1 y (a) = (a+1) • Scond, emember that two points on the tangent line are (1,2) and a
