How to Find the Equation of a Tangent Line with Derivatives (NancyPi)

Published on May 15, 2018 by

MIT grad shows how to find the tangent line equation using a derivative (Calculus). To skip ahead: 1) For a BASIC example, skip to time 0:44. 2) For an example that uses the QUOTIENT RULE, skip to time 5:58. 3) For an example that uses TRIG FUNCTIONS and the CHAIN RULE for finding the equation of a tangent line, skip to time 11:35. Nancy formerly of MathBFF explains the steps.

What is a tangent line? It is a line that is tangent to a curve at one point. You can use calculus for finding the tangent line equation, by taking the derivative of the given function.

There are four main steps to find the equation of a tangent line with derivatives:

1) TAKE DERIVATIVE: The first step is to take the derivative of the given equation, with respect to x. For instance, to find the equation of the line tangent to f(x) = x^2 + 3 at x = 4, first take the derivative of f(x), which is 2x, by the power rule.

2) PLUG IN X-VALUE INTO DERIVATIVE TO GET SLOPE: The second step is to plug the given x-value into the derivative of f(x). The value you get is the slope of the tangent line, m.

3) FIND Y-VALUE OF POINT WITH ORIGINAL EQUATION: The third step is to find the y-value of the point. You get this by plugging the given x-value into the original equation to find the corresponding y-value. Since you want the tangent line at x = 4, plug x = 4 into the original f(x), and you get a y-value of 7. Now that you have both the x and y coordinates, this means that the full point is (4,7).

4) PLUG THE SLOPE AND X,Y POINT VALUES INTO POINT-SLOPE EQUATION: The last step is to put the x and y point values, as well as the slope, m, into the point slope equation of a line. The point slope form is x - x1 = m (y - y1). Plug the x and y point values into this equation for x1 and y1. Plug the slope you found in for m. This is the equation of the tangent line. The equation will still have x and y variables in it.

You can also rearrange the equation you get so that it is in "y equals" or slope intercept form, if you want.

You may need to find the derivative with other derivative rules, such as the quotient rule or chain rule. Even if you need to use other rules when taking derivatives, or even if you need to differentiate something like a trigonometry function (ex. secant) or a fraction form with a numerator and denominator (rational function), the four main steps to find the equation of the tangent line will be the same.

  • Ronald Jensen 4 years ago

    For me it is simpler to consider that there are an infinite number of lines with a given slope (say, 5). That is, lines that satisfy:
    y = 5x + b
    But only one contains a given point [say (1,3)]:
    3 = 5*1 + b
    Solving for b give -2, so we know the equation of the tangent line is
    y = 5x – 2
    I think this method gets students ready for initial value problems and avoids the symbol overload of the 5 variables in the point-slope equation.

    I always found point slope formula unnecessarily complicated. I find it much easier to use the well known y=mx+b substitute x and y with with your (x,y) ((1,3) in the first example) coordinate values, and substitute m (5) with your slope value and solve for b.

    So 3=5(1)+b —> b=-2

    Now rewrite y=mx+b with your b and m value so y=5x-2

    thank you so much!! youโ€™re my favorite youtube math tutor now!! please donโ€™t stop using youโ€™re platform to share and help the students like me whoโ€™s having a hard time understanding the lessons that are thought by our actual teachers. God bless you! xoxo

    • LOCD&LOOSE 3 years ago

      Right! Why is it hard for math teachers to explain things, but people on youtube can explain it so perfectly?!?!? I’m in a hybird calculus course and the online learning lessons is just screenshots from a textbook and doesn’t actually explain a lot of steps and why something was done. Then there’s examples of a lesson that was never taught how to solve. It’s just assumed I’m guessing. Then you have to pay another online website to complete class assignments……
      Capitalistic america and lazy professors!

    you say the third step is to find the y coordinate yet because you decided to already include it in this example you just skip over it. Would have been nice to see that step in case a problem doesn’t give the whole point.

    Madam, all your lectures are so lucid! We did not have calculus in high school, and as a clinician I needed to understand the dynamics of the on-going Covid-19 pandemic. I have been able to learn calculus from your lectures, and have been successful in understanding the epidemic curves much better. thanks so much!
