The point P( 0.25 , 8 ) lies on the curve y = 2 / x .
Let Q be the point (x, 2 / x ) .

** a.) ** Find the slope of the secant line PQ for the following values of x .

Ifx= 0.35 , the slope of PQ is:

Ifx= 0.26 , the slope of PQ is:

Ifx= 0.15 , the slope of PQ is:

Ifx= 0.24 , the slope of PQ is:

** b.) ** Based on the above results, guess the slope of the tangent
line to the curve at P(0.25 , 8 ) .
