I am asked to find the equation of the tanget line to the curve at the givien points. (y -y1 = m(x1-x))(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The point is:

(-2/sqrt(3), 3/2)

Parametric Equations are:

where t = theta

x = 2*cot(t)

y = 2*sin^2(t)

How would i find what theta is in this set, inorder to solve dy/dx numericlly to get my slope (m)?
