Calculus

I have a data table and I graphed the data. I have to find the slope of a tangent at t=0. Would the slope just be zero?

  1. Not necessarily
    for example if the data lies along a straight line the slope is the same everywhere

    You have to take a straight edge and try to make it tangent to your graphed curve at the origin. I do not know what your data looks like so can not say.
