Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x . Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x . y- f ( x o ) = f ( x )( x- x ) Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x . y- f ( x o ) = f ( x )( x- x ) In three dimensions, the graph of f ( x , y ) is a surface, and our goal is to find the plane that is tangent to the surface at a point ( x , y ).
