Consider line segments which are tangent to a point on the right half (x>0) of the curve y = x^2+7 and connect the tangent point to the x-axis. If the tangent point is close to the y-axis, the line segment is long. If the tangent point is far from the y-axis, the line segment is also very long. Which tangent point has the shortest line segment?

(Suppose C is a positive number. What point on the curve has first coordinate equal to C?)
