Derivatives equation tangent IB math HL - IB mathematics Higher Level

The gradient of the curve at is

The equation of the tangent on this point is given by the equation

where is the gradient of the tangent

and the touch point is .

So, the equation of the tangent at the given point is

Hope these help!!
