Learn how to find the equation of a tangent line to a curve at a given point
All straight lines are found using y – b = m(x – a)
The gradient, m, can be found using the derivative of the curve
The gradient is the derivative evaluated at the point of tangency
If you’re only given the x co-ordinate, substitute into the function to find y
