Implicit Differentiation - Exercise 2
Exercise 2. Prove that an equation of the tangent line to
the graph of the hyperbola
at the point
Answer. Instead of finding y explicitly as a function of
x, we will use implicit differentiation to find the slope of
the tangent line. We have
So the equation of the tangent line at the point
the equation of the tangent line becomes
