Tangent Line Find an equation of the line tangent to the circle ( x − 1 ) 2 + ( y − 1 ) 2 = 25 at die point ( 4 , − 3 ) .

To determine

Equation of the tangent line to the circle (x1)2+(y1)2=25 at the point (4,-3).

Explanation

Given: The circle (x1)2+(y1)2=25 at the point (4,-3).

The graph of (x1)2+(y1)2=25 is a circle centered at (1, 1) with radius 5

The line tangent to the circle at (4,-3) is perpendicular to the drawn between the (1, 1) and the point (4,-3)

m=y2y1x2x1=3141=43

The slope is -4/3

So, the slope of the tangent line is 3/4
