Differentiate it, find the gradient at x=2, then construct the tangent line by using

Also turn that mixed fraction into an improper one, for the sake of simplicity.
4. Remember that if you have a function then is, by definition, the gradient of the tangent line to drawn at .

Thanks. Though how do i differentiate it. I ended up with y * (in 2 -in 2) which is definitely wrong.

You can use substitution .

Do you know how to differentiate u with respect to x?

Yeah it worked. Thanks. (With chain rule, right?)

Chain rule is the overall method, yeah, but differentiation of u wrt x would require implicit differentiation.
