Equations of Tangent Lines

5
Find the equation of the tangent line to Slope of the tangent line at (7, 15) Slope of f(x) at any x value

6
Equations of Tangent Lines We now have the slope and a point. We want the equation of the line with slope of 9 and going through (7,15).

10
Find the equation of the tangent line to Slope of the tangent line at x = 4 Slope of f(x) at any x value

11
Equations of Tangent Lines We now have the slope and the x-coordinate of a point. We first need to get the y-coor, then we will have both the slope and the point for our line.

12
Conclusion The derivative is a formula used to find the slope of the tangent line to a function. To find the slope of the tangent line to a function, first, find the derivative and, second, plug the corresponding x-value into the derivative. To write an equation for the tangent line, use the derivative value (the slope), and the corresponding point on the function.
