y = 7 sec x

P = (π/3, 14)

**MathMate**, Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 9:15pmy(x)=7sec(x)

y'(x)=7sec(x)tan(x)

at x=π/3,

slope of tangent, m =

y'(x)= 7*sec(π/3)tan(π/3)

=7*2*sqrt(3)

=14sqrt(3)

We now look for a line passing through P1(x0,y0)=(π/3,14) with a slope of m=14sqrt(3).

The equation to use is:

(y-y0)=m(x-x0)

substitute x0=π/3, y0=14, m=14sqrt(3) and simplify to get equation of tangent.
