Step 1

We first find the slope of the tangent for which we need **derivative** of **f(x)**. Differentiating **f(x)** w.r.t. **x** we get:

*arrow_forward*

Step 2

Now, slope is the value of **f’(x)** at the given point **x = 1**.

*arrow_forward*

Step 3

Now, to find any one point on the tangent line, we consider the fact that tangent line is drawn at **x=1**. This point also lies on the curve and hence its y-coordinate is the value of **f(x)** at **x=1**. We get:
