Secant Lines and Tangent The secant line PQ passing through two point P(a, f(a)) and Q(x, f(x)) has the slope 11/09/16 Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh ( ) ( ) PQ f x f a m x a P Q by letting Q P x a
Tangent Line The tangent line to the curve y=f(x) at the point P(a, f(a)) is the line through P with slope 11/09/16 Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh ( ) ( ) lim x a f x f a m x a P Equation of tangent line: - If m : y m ( x a ) f ( a ) - If m   : x a (vertical line)

Rates of Changes Let y be a quantity that depends on another quantity x. So, y=f(x) 11/09/16 Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh 1 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 If changes from to , then the change in (increment of ) is The corresponding change in is ( ) ( ) The difference quotient is called the average rate of change x x x x x x x x y y y y f x f x y x x x 1 2 of y with respect to x over the interval [ , ] x x

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
