Hey, right now in our calculus course we are currently working on "derivatives" using the differentiation equations. I was hoping that someone could help me out with the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the equation of the tangent line to the curve at the given point.

y = rootX , (4, 0.4)

------

X + 1

It's not an overly difficult question because we know that the equation is y-0.4 = m(x-4) and we are looking for m(the slope), and we also know that we should be using the formula f'(x)g(x)-g(x)f'(x)/[g(x)]^2

However, I'm still having some difficulties in working this out, if someone could please shed some light on this, I'd be happy. :D
