The tangent problem? No I used geogebra to get the tangents for me. But when I look at the graph I am not so sure of the answer we are all getting.

Question: Are you satisfied with your tangent line?

Hi;

Have you seen an implicit plot of that equation?

Thank you bobbym

Hi Julieeeee;

I am getting that for a tangent also. How did you get yours?

For that integral, Maple gets the first answer too. Might be that an absolute value is wrapped around each term and they have both left it out...

When I do it by hand I do not get Alpha's answer either.

What about tangent touching graph of

I get

And also...

But wolfram alpha says

Why is that so?

Hi Julieeeee;

Is the purple shaded area what you want?

I'd like to check my result. I have to find area between

axis. I got
