There’s a special relationship between two secants that intersect outside of a circle. The length outside the circle, multiplied by the length of the whole secant is equal to the outside length of the other secant multiplied by the whole length of the other secant.

Read MoreWhen a problem asks you to find the equation of the tangent line, you’ll always be asked to evaluate at the point where the tangent line intersects the graph. You’ll need to find the derivative, and evaluate at the given point.

Read MoreThe definition of the derivative, also called the “difference quotient”, is a tool we use to find derivatives “the long way”, before we learn all the shortcuts later that let us find them “the fast way”.
