Equation for tangent to a curve and parallel to another line

  1. Oct 7, 2009 #1
    How would find the equation of a line that has to be tangent to a curve and parallel to another line (i know slope has to be equal)

    (you are given the equation of the line and the curve)
    x^3
    3x-y-6

    Re: Derivaties

    What equations? Where are the equations? You don't have any equal signs. State the problem correctly and show us what you have tried.
