(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine equations of all lines the are tangent to y=x^2/(x-1) and that pass through the point (2,0).

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

First I found the y' which I came up with y'=x(x-2)/(x-1)^2

next, let (a,f(a)) and put a to y'

f'(a)=a(a-2)/(a-1)^2 (slope of tangent lines at x=a) ->①

also this slope is given by f(a)-0/a-2 -> ②

①=② then solve for a, but I stuck for calculating this...

Am I on the right truck ?? can anyone help me, please??
