Consider a tangent m on some point on the graph of a curve f(x). What is the tangent to any point on m? Or, more simply what is the tangent to a straight line?

I believe it is the line itself,right?

TopNewestThe tangent on \(f(x)\) has equation \(f'(x)\). You cant say that there is a point that is tangent to a curve, the line which contains \(m\) is tangent.
