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

find equations of the tangent lines to the curve

y= x-1/x+1

that are parallel to the line x-2y = 2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

ok so i found the derivative, then set it equal to the slope (-1). then plugged x back into the original equation to get

y = -x + 41/14 and y= -x + 17/10

is this right? thanks in advance!
