(a) The equation of the tangent line to the circle through the point (6,8) has equation y= 6/8 x + 12.5 . (b) Suppose that L is a tangent line to this circle which is parallel to the line y=5x+7 and has a negative y intercept. Then the
point of tangency of L with this circle is ( 9.8 , 1.98 ). 2. 8/8 points | Previous Answers Draw the unit circle and plot the point P=(6,2). Observe there are TWO lines tangent to the circle passing through the point P. Answer
the questions below with 3 decimal places of accuracy. (a) The line L1 is tangent to the unit circle at the point ( .16 , .99 ). (b) The tangent line L1 has equation: y= .164 x + 1.02 . (c) The line L2 is tangent to the unit circle at the point ( .462 , .887 ). (d) The tangent line L2 has equation: y= .521 x + 1.13 . 1/5 6/5/2019 hw01S10.1 3. 5/5 points | Previous AnswersSCalcET8 10.1.045. Suppose that the position of one particle at time t is given by
x1 = 2 sin(t), y1 = 2 cos(t), 0 ≤ t ≤ 2π
and the position of a second particle is given by
x2 = −2 + cos(t), y2 = 1 + sin(t), 0 ≤ t ≤ 2π.
(a) Graph the paths of both particles. How many points of intersection are there? 2 points of intersection (b) Are any of these points of intersection collision points? In other words, are the particles ever at the same place at the same
No 2/5 6/5/2019 hw01S10.1 If so, find the collision points. (Enter your answers as a commaseparated list of ordered pairs. If an answer does not exist,
enter DNE.) $$(−2,0) (c) If the xcoordinate of the second particle is given by x2 = 2 + cos(t) instead, is there still a collision? Yes

x = x1 + (x2 − x1)t, y = y1 + (y2 − y1)t
where 0 ≤ t ≤ 1 describe the line segment that joins the points P1(x1, y1) and P2(x2, y2). Draw the triangle with vertices A(1, 1), B(4, 4), C(1, 7). Find the parametrization, including endpoints, and sketch to check. (Enter
your answers as a commaseparated list of equations. Let x and y be in terms of t.)

the distance units in the plane are "feet" and the time units are "seconds". In particular, the ant is initially at the point A=(1,0). A
spider is located at the point S=(2,0) on the xaxis. The spider plans to move along the tangential line pictured at a constant rate.
Assume the spider starts moving at the same time as the ant. Finally, assume that the spider catches the ant at the tangency point P
the second time the ant reaches P. (a) The coordinates of the tangency point P=(

$$cos−1(12 )π seconds. (c) The SECOND time the ant reaches P is
$$2+cos−1(12 )π seconds. (d) The parametric equations for the motion of the spider are: x(t)=

line through P. A line that is tangent to a parabola does not intersect the parabola at any other point. We can use this fact to find the
equation of the tangent line. (a) If m is the slope of the tangent line, then using the slope/point formula, the equation of the tangent line will be: y = m(x

quadratic equation has exactly one solution is the slope of the tangent line. This value is m =
