Description :

Determine the equation of the tangent at a given point.

C is the graph of a differentiable function f at point a. The tangent to C at point A (a, f (a)) is the line through A and whose director coefficient is `f'(a)`.

An equation of the tangent to C at point A (a; f (a)) is : `y = f(a) + f'(a)(x-a)`.

It is through this approach that the function equation_tangent_line allows determine online the reduced equation of a tangent to a curve at a given point.

For example, to calculate the equation of the tangent at 1 of the function `f: x-> x^2+3`, enter equation_tangent_line(x^2+3;1) , after calculating the result `[y=2+2*x]` is returned.

The calculator shows the steps for determining the equation of the tangent.
