## Tangent

In geometry, the **tangent line** (or simply the **tangent**) to a plane curve at a given point is the straight line that "just touches" the curve at that point. More precisely, a straight line is said to be a tangent of a curve *y* = *f*(*x*) at a point *x* = *c* on the curve if the line passes through the point (*c*, *f*(*c*)) on the curve and has slope *f*'(*c*) where *f*' is the derivative of *f*. A similar definition applies to space curves and curves in *n*-dimensional Euclidean space.
