    It's the slope of the tangent at the given point (and we're given that tangent's equation (we're given that the line is tangent)).

    Note f'(x) = 5 for all x, so f'(1) = 5.

    What is this? boredsatan's do my maths homework and sanity check thread?

    Most of the time, you don't show appreciation for help you receive... and even dare to ignore some solutions.

    This thread is more harm than good; it's an obstacle that lessens the opportunities for you to exercise your own judgement.

    He is not the only one. Many on BOS posed questions and mostly made no acknowledgement nor words of appreciation. I suppose that is the norm of the current generation.

    If I say thank you every time, won't it count as shitposting?

    Why would it be considered as 'shitposting'?

    There are other ways to express gratitude other than words. Imagine you and a group of kind helpers spare some time out of multiple days to help a struggling homeless person and that person just takes your gifts without making eye contact, rarely expresses gratitude, begs for more... How would you feel?


    Also, I'm not making the comments based on my views on your ability to do maths but it's because I've noticed you've become dependent on this thread to do some maths. How will you handle yourself when there is no help?

    I think another thing He-Mann said in the last line was to try questions yourself before posting, e.g. derivative of 5x

    Hello there, just wondering, how is finding the derivative of 5x hard?

    f'(x) is a derivative so it's pretty much differentiating 5x

    even though i am 99.9% sure you're a troll but for that 0.1% of doubt, im gonna be honest; if you find these basic questions "hard" you should really consider dropping math or dropping down to general maths. It won't do anything good for your atar if you get 50 in 2U versus getting 65+ in general
