A) Find the unit vector parallel to tan(x) at (Pi/4, 1)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

B) Find the unit vector normal to tan(x) at (Pi/4, 1)

dy/dx tanx = sec^{2}x and sec^{2}x evaluated at x = Pi/4 is 2. So the slope of the parallel line is 2, but how do I then derive the unit vector?
