    help!!!!Calculus problems

    1)Find the equation of the tangent line to f(x) = (x - 6)8 at the point where x = 7.

    2)The demand curve for a product is given by
    q = f(p) = 5,000e-0.30p,
    where q is the quantity sold and p is the price of the product, in dollars. Find f(6) and f'(6).
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have a hunch that maybe you did not write the problem correctly.

    Also, nobody is going to do your homework for you, so you have to put your work down if you want help.

    u probably got the question wrong the given equation is linear. tangent at any point of linear equation is that line itself. plus u'll never learn if r gonna have someone else do ur HW.

    I suspect that the first problem involved (x-6)8.

    However, there is no work shown so don't expect anyone to do your work for you.
