**Question: 330**

**5.** Which of the following is an equation of the line tangent to the curve with parametric equations x = 3t^{2} - 2, y = 2t^{3} + 2 at the point when t = 1?

- A. y = 3x
^{2}+ 7x - B. y = 6x - 2
- C. y = x
- D. y = x + 3

**Correct Answer:** D

**Explanation:**

The correct answer is (D).

and

, and since

is the slope of the tangent line. At t = 1, x = 1, y = 4, so the point of tangency is (1, 4). Equation of tangent: y - 4 = 1(x - 1) ⇒ y = x + 3.
