Function: f(x) = x^3

Line 3x-y+1 = 0

._.; I know the derivative of the function is 3x^2 and I do have the answer in the back of my book just need the way to get it..

**Corin**, Monday, August 27, 2007 at 12:24amSorry in advance-- I don't know how to find the answer, but I'm willing to help all I can.

First, rearrange the equation of the line to make it y=-3x-1. Since we need to find a line parallel to this one, we know it needs a slope of -3.

y=-3x-1

y=mx+b

m=slope

m=-3

What is the answer the back of the book gives? Sometimes it's possible to work backwards from the answer.

Sorry thats as far as I could go.

I'll try to help you out all I can--I'm trying to work it out right now.

It was y=3x+2 I think.

It doesn't matter though XD I'll just ask my teacher when I get there
