In summary, "-apc.2.1.06" crosses the x-axis at one point in the interval [0,1], meaning that there is only one solution to the function in this interval. This can be determined by setting the function equal to zero and solving for x. The "-apc.2.1.06" represents the function itself and can be evaluated for different values of x. A function can cross the x-axis at more than one point, indicating multiple solutions. This information can also help determine the behavior of the function in the given interval.

The graph of $y=e^{\tan x}-2$ crosses the x-axis at one point in the interval [0,1]
What is the slope of the graph at this point.
a, 0.606 b. 2 c, 2.242 d.2.961 e.3.747

[d]
$\begin{array}{rll} \textit{given} &e^{\tan \:x}-2 &(1)\\ \textit{rewrite} &e^{\tan x}=2 &(2) \\ \textit{e thru} &\tan x=\ln 2 &(3)\\ \textit{isolate x } &x=\arctan \ln 2+\pi n &(4)\\ \textit{[0,1] } &\arctan(\ln 2)=0.606 &(5)\\ \textit{m at x} &y_m=e^{\tan (x)}\sec ^2(x) &(6)\\ \textit{m} &y_m(0.606)=2.96 &(7) \end{array}$

it took me 2 hours to do this
must be a better way

if its correct:unsure:

fyi, this is a calculator active problem …

if its correct:unsure:
You mean "given $e^{\tan(x)}-2= 0$". Otherwise your second line makes no sense!

ok guess I was assuming that

## What does the expression "-apc.2.1.06 crosses the x-axis at one point in the interval [0,1]" mean?

This expression refers to a mathematical function, where the value of the function equals zero at a specific point on the x-axis within the interval of 0 to 1.

## What is the significance of a function crossing the x-axis at one point?

When a function crosses the x-axis at one point, it means that there is only one solution to the equation. This can be useful in solving problems or finding the roots of a function.

## How can you determine the exact point where the function crosses the x-axis?

To determine the exact point where the function crosses the x-axis, you can set the function equal to zero and solve for the x-value. This will give you the coordinate of the point where the function crosses the x-axis.

## What does the interval [0,1] represent in this expression?

The interval [0,1] represents the range of values for the x-axis. In this case, it means that the function crosses the x-axis at one point between the values of 0 and 1.

## What is the relationship between the function and the x-axis in this expression?

The function and the x-axis are related in that the function crosses the x-axis at one point, meaning that the value of the function is equal to zero at that point. This can also be seen as the x-intercept of the function.
