6.5/5 points | Previous AnswersThe graph of the quadratic function y= 2x2– 4x+ 1 is pictured below, along with the point P=(-1,7) on the parabola and the tangent linethrough 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 ofthe tangent line. (a) If mis the slope of the tangent line, then using the slope/point formula, the equation of the tangent line will be:
