    Use the power rule for derivatives to get

    For L: y=3x+1, the slope is 3.

    Solve for x0 in

    Find the ordinate

    The point of tangency is therefore at (x0,y0).

    Now pass a line L1 through (x0,y0) having a slope of 3:

    Check that the line has a slope of 3 and pass through the point (x0,y0)
