Ex 6.3, 4 Find the slope of the tangent to the curve 𝑦=π‘₯^3βˆ’3π‘₯+2 at the point whose π‘₯βˆ’coordinate is 3 𝑦=π‘₯^3βˆ’3π‘₯+2 We know that slope of tangent =𝑑𝑦/𝑑π‘₯ 𝑑𝑦/𝑑π‘₯=3π‘₯^2βˆ’3 Since π‘₯βˆ’coordinate is 3 Putting π‘₯=3 in (1) 〖𝑑𝑦/𝑑π‘₯β”‚γ€—_(π‘₯ = 3)=3(3)^2βˆ’3 =3 Γ—9βˆ’3 =27βˆ’3 =24 Hence slope of tangent is 24
