Hello again everybody this is Tom from every step calculus.com every step physics.com. Calculus problem regarding a tangent line to a curve getting with two variables, I’m going to show you how that works on my programs, index 8 to get to my menu I’m already at equation of a tangent line here I’m going to enter the function you have to press alpha before you press anything in these entry lines, alpha x^3+6xy+y^2-8=0 you always have to transpose everything on the other side of the equation here and bring it over on the left side then make 0 to the right or a number to the right ether one would work, now because you enter y in here is going to be an implicit differentiation problem so here is the formula here that you just entered in the implicit system, it looks pretty good then click ok, differentiation both sides of equation with respect to x so here we go both sides and do each sides individually this one here because xy we need the product rule, you can write the product rule down and do it like this or you can just keep clicking and you will finally get to the product rule answer which is this right here which is (6+x) (dy/dx) and we keep going (2^y) = to the because it is a dy/dx also and you combine the functions dy/dx here and then no dy/dx just regular xy and the implicit answer is right here (-3*x ^2-6*y) divided by (6*x+2*y) now we are going to evaluate it at a point and the point is alpha 1 and alpha 1 so xy is 1 1 say its ok and we enter those variables into the numerator and the denominator come up with a slope of -9/8 slope of the line and then we figure the y=mx+b which is the slope m and the we add the one for the x and the one for the y and then figure out what b is here then you subtract this from one and one is of course 8/8 and when you subtract it you get 17/8 your subtracting a minus so you get 17/8 and here is the answer y=mx+b pretty neat, every step you go and I also give you the angle of the line the way it is pointing, if you notice the way it is pointing in this direction not up but down to the right and if you want to do it on a other points it will take you back there. Pretty neat ah, every step calculus.com go on my sight buy my programs if you want to pass calculus and subscribe if you want to see more videos that I might make. Hey have a good one.
