To show that the point (p,4p^2) lies on the curve y=4x^2, we substitute the x-coordinate p into the equation and check if it satisfies the equation.

Substituting p into the equation y=4x^2, we get: y = 4p^2

Since the y-coordinate of the point (p,4p^2) is equal to 4p^2, it satisfies the equation y=4x^2. Therefore, the point (p,4p^2) lies on the curve y=4x^2 for all real values of p.

To find the equation of the tangent to y=4x^2 at (p,4p^2), we need to find the slope of the tangent at that point. The slope of the tangent can be found by taking the derivative of the equation y=4x^2 with respect to x.

Differentiating y=4x^2 with respect to x, we get: dy/dx = 8x

Substituting the x-coordinate p into the derivative, we get the slope of the tangent at (p,4p^2): dy/dx = 8p

Now, we have the slope of the tangent at (p,4p^2) as 8p. To find the equation of the tangent, we use the point-slope form of a linear equation, y - y1 = m(x - x1), where (x1, y1) is the point (p,4p^2) and m is the slope 8p.

Substituting the values into the point-slope form, we get the equation of the tangent: y - 4p^2 = 8p(x - p)

Simplifying the equation, we can expand the right side: y - 4p^2 = 8px - 8p^2

Finally, rearranging the equation, we get the equation of the tangent to y=4x^2 at (p,4p^2): y = 8px - 8p^2 + 4p^2

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.
