Equations of Tangents and Normals

  1. 1. Applications of Differentiation of Polynomials: Tangents and Normals Questions 1 Find the equation of the tangent to the following curves at the points indicated: a f(x) = x2 − 2x + 5 at x = −1 b f(x) = x2 − 7x − 18 at x = 2 c f(x) = x2 − x + 4 at x = −2 d f(x) = 3x2 − 7x + 2 at x = 3 e f(x) = x3 + 6x2 − 7x + 2 at x = 1 f f(x) = −2x3 + 5x2 + 2x +12 at x = 0 g f(x) = at x = 1 h f(x) = at x = 1 2 Find the equation of the normals to the following curves at the points indicated: a f(x) = at x = 1 b f(x) = x3 − 4x2 + 5x + 2 at x = 1 c f(x) = at x = 2 d f(x) = at x = 2 e f(x) = at x = 0 f f(x) = at x = −1 g f(x) = at x = 4 h f(x) = at x = 2
