# Find the equations of the tangent and normal to the given curves at the indicated points:y = x4 – 6x3 + 13x2 – 10x + 5 at (0, 5)

It is given that equation of curve is y = x4 – 6x3 + 13x2 – 10x + 5

On differentiating with respect to x, we get

= 4x- 18x2 +26x -10

Now, Slope of tangent will be the value of  at x = 0 i.e.
m1 = 4(0)3 - 18(0)2 + 26(0) - 10 = -10

Therefore, the slope of the tangent at (0, 5) is -10.

Then, the equation of the tangent is

y – 5 = -10(x – 0)

y – 5 = 10x

10x +y =5

Also, slope of normal at (0,5)

Now, equation of the normal at (0,5)

10y - 50 = x

x -10y +50 = 0
