# How do you determine at which the graph of the function #y=x^2+1# has a horizontal tangent line?

See below.

Horizontal tangents have a gradient of zero, so if we find the first derivative and solve it for zero, we can identify where these lie:

So horizontal tangent at

To determine at which point the graph of the function y=x^2+1 has a horizontal tangent line, we need to find the derivative of the function and set it equal to zero. Taking the derivative of y=x^2+1 with respect to x, we get dy/dx = 2x. Setting this derivative equal to zero, we have 2x = 0. Solving for x, we find x = 0. Therefore, the graph of the function y=x^2+1 has a horizontal tangent line at the point (0, 1).

To determine where the graph of the function ( y = x^2 + 1 ) has a horizontal tangent line, you need to find the points where the derivative of the function equals zero. So, find the derivative of the function ( y = x^2 + 1 ) with respect to ( x ), which is ( y' = 2x ). Then, set this derivative equal to zero and solve for ( x ) to find the critical points. After finding the critical points, you can determine whether the tangent lines are horizontal or not at those points by examining the slope of the tangent line.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
