## Homework Statement

Find an equation of the tangent to the curve given by

x=tan(∅)

y=sec(∅)

at the point (1,sqrt(2))

The answer should be in the form y=f(x) without ∅

## The Attempt at a Solution

Tangent line equation...

y-y*=m(x-x*)

m = dy/dx

m = sec(∅)tan(∅) / (sec^2(∅)

m = tan∅ / sec(∅)

m = sin∅

This is what I did so far, i'm a bit lost obviously
