Evaluate g(π/3)=-1/π (check!)

Therefore the tangent passes through the point P1=(x1,y1)=(π/3,-1/π).

Find the derivative g'(x), and hence the slope at P1.

The tangent line is given by

L1: y-y1 = m(x-x1)

where m=g'(π/3), and (x1,y1) are the coordinates of P1 given above.

If you need help finding g'(x), please post.
