on the chain rule

find the tangent line to graph y=(x+2/x+1)^2, at x=0

check_circle

Expert Answer

Step 1

We have to find tangent line to y , first we will find  value of y at x=0.

fullscreen
Step 2

We will use chain rule and quotient rule to find derivative at x=0  as we know that derivative at x=0 will give slope of tangent line to y((x) at x=0.we will use slope intercept form of line to find tangent to y(x) .

Step 3

Now we have point (0,4) and slope m=-4 then with the help of slope in...
