Homework Help: College Calculus

Posted by NY-Calc on Monday, March 7, 2011 at 12:45pm.

Let f(x) = 3x^2 - 2x + 1

a) write an equation of the line going through the points (1, f(1)), and (2, f(2)).

b) Find a point on the graph of f where the tangent line to the graph has the same slope as the line in part (a). Write the equation of the tangent line at that point.


I got the answer to part A. For part b, I'm confused...isn't the slope of the tangent line -1/slope of normal line?

for part a) i got y = 7x -5
