Make the function y = x * f(g(x)) where the function y=f(g(x)) is defined by two graphs. One of the graphs y = f(u) (the graph is a curve that x-axis on -1 and the y-axis on just around 0.25 and 3.75) has the tangents where u = 1 and u = 3 and the other graph is named u = g(x) (the graph is linear and hits the y-axis on 2.5). The graph for the equations y = x* f(g(x)) has the tangent x = 1. Define the equation for the tangent. /Mathmen

I was thinking y2 - y1 = k(x2 - x1) or also y = kx+b

Alternatively, there are many sites that will let you upload your file (for free) so that you can link to it from here.

If they are then I finally managed to get the right answer after many hours of work :P After sitting with the question for a couple of hours and come to this answer, I would really appreciate if anyone can tell me if I made any type of mistake during the process because I'm quite confused if it should actually become y2 = x + f(g(1)) or y2 = x* f(g(1)) y2 –y 1 = k(x2 –x1) y2 – f(g(1)) = f’(g(1)) * g(1) (x2 -1) y2 – f(g(1)) = f’(g(1)) * g(1) * x - f’(g(1)) * g(1) y2 = f’(g(1)) * g(1) * x - f’(g(1)) * g(1) + f(g(1)) y2 = x* f(g(1)) Thanks!
