Here are the questions:
I have posted a link there to this thread so the OP can view my work.Tangents, Normal. Need some help.?
I just recently took a test, and i am unsure of the following questions. It would be great if you provide me some explanations and workings.
1) A curve has the equation y = 2x^(2) - kx + 3, where k is a constant. The tangent at the point A passes through the point B(5,1). Find the value of k.
2) A curve has the equation y = x + x^(2). Find
i) The equation of the tangent to the curve at the point where x = a.
ii) The value(s) of a for which this tangent passes through the point P(-2,3)
iii) Hence find the possible equations of the tangent from P to the curve.
Thank you so much guys!! Have a great day
