the image is not clear, but it is about a line meeting a curve as a tangent.

here is a similar example:

y = ax + b

y = x2 - 3x - 1

where they meet we can say

x2 - 3x - 1 = ax + b

which rearranges to give

x2 -3x -ax -1-b = 0

for a tangent this must have only one (repeated) root....

The line 4y=x+c ,where c is a constant,is a tangent to the curve y^2 =x+3 at the point P on the curve.
(i) Find the value of c.

Have you looked at the example given by the bear above and tried to follow the logic?

But it s inverse and the marking scheme states that I should use quadratics? I m trying I think I made a mistake

What do you mean by "inverse"?

It's an example of a line being tangent to a curve and leads to a quadratic equation, and that requirement implies a certain condition on the roots of the quadratic.

So have you managed to sort out the question involving the line being tangent to the curve?
