I am having trouble coming up with the answer to this question. My professor asked us to prove how you find the slope of a point on a line using a vector using the following information: y=mx+b r=<t,f(t)> r(prime)=<1,f((prime)(t(sub 0))) r(t)=r(t(sub 0) + s<1,f(prime)(t(sub 0))> <f,f(t)>=<t(sub 0), f(t(sub 0))> +s<1,f(t(sub 0))>
