Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 20E
To determine

To find:The value of the tangent line and derivative of the tangent line at a=4 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 20E

Value of the function and derivative of the function at a=4 are 14 and 4 respectively.

Explanation of Solution

Given: y=f(x) at (4,3) passes through the point (0,2) .

Let y=f(x) be any function.

It has to find The value of the function and derivative of the function at a=2

  m=yy1xx1=3240=14yy1=m(xx1)y3=14(x4)f(x)=y=14x+2f(4)=12(4)+2=3f(4)=limxaf(x)f(a)(xa)=limxa14x+2(f(4))x(4)=limxa14x1x4=limxa14(x4)x4=limxa14=14

Now derivative of the function

  f'(x)=4f'(4)=4

Hence, value of the function and derivative of the function at a=4 are 14 and 4 respectively.
