## How do you find the equation of a tangent line?

1) Find the first derivative of f(x). 2) Plug x value of the indicated point into f ‘(x) to find the slope at x. 3) Plug x value into f(x) to find the y coordinate of the tangent point. 4) Combine the slope from step 2 and point from step 3 using the point-slope formula to find the equation for the tangent line.

## Is it possible to draw a tangent on a straight line?

Definition of tangent: a straight line or plane that touches a curve or curved surface at a point, but if extended does not cross it at that point. So strictly there cannot be a tangent to a straight line.

## What is tangent to curve?

tangent, in geometry, the tangent line to a curve at a point is that straight line that best approximates (or “clings to”) the curve near that point. It may be considered the limiting position of straight lines passing through the given point and a nearby point of the curve as the second point approaches the first.

## What is tan for in AutoCAD?
