Math 165 Midterm Exam Second Part Instructor: Answer each question completely. Show all work. No credit is allowed for mere answers with no work shown. Show the steps of calculations. State the reasons that justify conclusions. 1. (10 points) Consider y = f ( x ) = x 2 + 8. (a) Find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of f ( x ) at the point where x = 1. (b) Tell where this tangent line intersects the x -axis.
