    the tangent line to f(x)=x/4 - 1

    Find an equation for the tangent line to f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1

    I don't know the sentence is how to combine.

    Is it connect in this way?


    Find an equation for the tangent line to f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1

    ...............................the tangent line to f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1

    .................................................. .........f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1

    Am I right?


    In addition, why is the tangent line to f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1? Could I say the tangent line of f(x)=x/4 - 1 at x=1?


    Thanks a lot.

    I think it's going to take someone with a better grasp of mathematics (than of English) to answer that one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Google Books indicates that both "to" and "of" are possible.
