# 6.2 PROPERTY OF CURVES

After completing this section, you should be able to:

• find equation of tangent to a curve: $y – y_1 = f'(a)(x – x_1)$
• find equation of normal to a curve: $y – y_1 = -\displaystyle \dfrac{1}{f'(a)}(x – x_1)$
• find the region of increasing and decreasing functions
• find turning points
• find points of inflection and concavity
