To find the equation of a line, we need the slope of the line and a point on the line. Since we are requested to find the equation of the tangent line at the point (64, 8), we know that (64, 8) is a point on the line. So we just need to find its slope. The slope of a tangent ...

if youre factoring this then the way you factor the quadratic equation looks like this: (3x^2+5x-2)=0 (3x-1)(x+2)=0 *notice how the the FOIL method works here. then to get x you would take each one and set it to 0. making this x=(1/3) and x=-2
