he It's clear. So when you right here, So we have of X is equal to two x over X square plus one. We're gonna difference she using the product quotient rule to get X square plus one D over DX for two x minus two X d over D X for X square plus one all over X square plus one square. This becomes equal to X square plus one times two minus two X tones to X all over X square plus one square, which is equal to two minus two X square over X square plus one square. A slip of detention at one common one become zero, and the equation of change in is why minus one over X minus or unequal. Ciro. So why is equal to one? And we know that the normal line is perpendicular, so it's going to be access equal to one
