NOTE: This apcalculus EDG will be closing in the next few weeks. Please sign up for the new AP Calculus Teacher Community Forum at https://apcommunity.collegeboard.org/gettingstarted and post messages there.  Good morning, I was working on exercise 69 from Larson early Transcendentals and am missing the key to answering the question.
Find the value of k such that the line is tangent to the graph of the function.
(function) f(x) = x^2  kx (line) y = 5x 4
the answers are x= 1, 9 but I can't seem to get that when I work out the problem. Thank you for the assistance in advance.  To search the list archives for previous posts go to http://lyris.collegeboard.com/read/?forum=apcalculus
