# Finding an Equation of a Tangent Line In Exercises 43–50, find an equation of the tangent line to the graph of the function at the given point. Function Point y = sin   8 x ( π ,   0 )

To determine

To calculate: The equation of the tangent line to the graph of the provided function y=sin8x at given point (π,0).

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is y=sin8x at given point (π,0).

Formula used:

Sine differentiation rule:

ddx[sinu]=cosududx

General power rule of differentiation:

ddx[xn]=nxn1

Write the equation of the tangent line at a given point (x1,y1).

yy1=dydx(x1,y1)(xx1)

Here, dydx(x1,y1) represents slope at point (x1,y1).

Calculation:

Consider the provided function:

y=sin8x

Differentiate the above function using Sine and general power rules of differentiation.

dydx=ddx[sin8x]=8cos8x

The derivative of function y=sin8x

dydx=8cos8x

Substitute, π for x in above derivative
