To find the equation of the tangent line when x = 1 for the function y = arctan(sqrt(x)), we need to find the derivative of the function first. The derivative of y with respect to x can be found using the chain rule.

The derivative of y = arctan(sqrt(x)) is given by:

dy/dx = (1 / (1 + x)^(3/2)) * (1 / (2 * sqrt(x)))

Now, we can substitute x = 1 into the derivative to find the slope of the tangent line at x = 1:

dy/dx = (1 / (1 + 1)^(3/2)) * (1 / (2 * sqrt(1))) = (1 / 2) * (1 / 2) = 1 / 4

Therefore, the slope of the tangent line at x = 1 is 1/4.

To find the equation of the tangent line, we need a point on the line. Since x = 1, we can substitute this value into the original function to find the corresponding y-coordinate:

y = arctan(sqrt(1)) = arctan(1) = π/4

So, the point on the tangent line is (1, π/4).

Using the point-slope form of a line, we can write the equation of the tangent line:

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

Substituting the values we found:

y - π/4 = (1/4)(x - 1)

This is the equation of the tangent line when x = 1 for the function y = arctan(sqrt(x)).

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.
