Hi everyone: I am trying to find the equation of a curve given its tangent and an arbitrary point. Is there a mathematica solution for this? For example: If I give you the tangent to a curve: -4+11x at x =2, Is it possible to derive the equation of the curve from that tangent? Thanks for whatever. Manuel
