#### Question

Determine the point(s) (if any) at which the graph of the function has a horizontal tangent line. y = √3x + 2 cos x, 0≤ x < 2π

#### Step 1

1 of 7

$\frac{d}{dx}[\sqrt{3}x]+\frac{d}{dx}[2cos(x)]=\sqrt{3}\frac{d}{dx}[x]+2\frac{d}{dx}[cos(x)]=\sqrt{3}-2\sin{x}$

A horizontal tangent line has a slope of zero, therefore we need to find the points where the graph of the function has a slope of zero. The slope of a function is the function of its instantaneous rate of change or its derivative. So first we need to find the derivative.
