Please Help! Line passing through an Ellipse and a Point 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and I could really use some help with this problem. There is an ellipse with the equation: (X^2/4) + Y^2 = 1 There is a point on the graph (4,0) Find an equation that passes through the line and the point...(must use the chain rule) 2. Relevant equations (X^2/4) + Y^2 = 1 3. The attempt at a solution I attempted to derive the slope of the circle: (DY/DX) = (-.5X)/(2Y)... What do I do from here? Was that part even right? Thanks!
