Derivatives Example: Tangent Line to a Curve

in MES Sciencelast month

In this video I go over a useful example finding the equation of the tangent line to a curve at a given point. The derivative at that point is the same as the slope of the tangent line and this is used in determining the equation of the tangent line.
