Hi Lachlan,
I think, I am not proving myself a good student of Maths. Please give me
some example for the explanation that you gave. Let I have a point (5,7)
on a curve, then how I am supposed to draw a tangent on this point.
Thank you,
Syed Zeeshan Haider.

So did the replies actually helpyou figure out how it can de figured out
to
be drawn, or do you want an example?

Wee maths. Bluh. Anyway, I should be able to help with some of the maths
stuff anyway. I'm doing Specialist Maths at the moment, but you'll need
to
bug other people about physics stuff.

Well of course, after all everyone else tolerates me. ;)
