Question

Find the slope of the curve y=x^{2}-5x-4 at the point P(3,-10) by finding the limit of the secant slopes through point P. Can you please show me how to solve?

Step 1

The given equation is *y*(*x*) = *x*^{2} – 5*x *– 4 and the given point is (3,–10).

Let the other point of intersection of the secant and the curve be

(3 + *h,* *y *(3 + *h*)).

Step 2
