Question:

Write an equation for the line tangent to the curve $$ f(x) = x^{4} -3x^{3} - 5x^{2} + 10 $$ at x = 1.

Melissa T.

Answer:

$$ f(1) = 1^{4} -3(1)^{3} - 5(1)^{2} + 10 = 3 $$ $$ f'(x) = 4x^{3} - 9x^{2} - 10x $$ $$ f'(1) = 4(1)^{3} - 9(1)^{2} - 10(1) = -15 $$ The line tangent to the curve at x = 1 is $$ y - 3 = -15 (x-1) $$.
