If tangent to the

Answer :

Given: Tangent to the curve y2 + 3x – 7 = 0 at point (h, k) is parallel to line x – y = 4

To Find: Value of k

Differentiating the curve with respect to x we get,

At point (h, k),

And the line is parallel to the line x – y = 4

Slope of the line is = 1

So, equating both the slopes we get,


Given: y = 5x – 2x3 and x increases at the rate of 2units/sec

To Find: Rate of change of curve at x = 3.

Slope of the curve is,

Rate of change of slope is =

Rate of change of x is = units/sec

So, at x = 3, the rate of change of slope is (-12 x 3 x 2) = -72 units/sec.

That means the slope is decreasing at the rate of 72 units/sec.
