||How does one find the tangent points on a curve, given only the curve's function
and the x-intercept of that tangent line?
i.e. Find the point(s) on the curve y = -(x^2) + 1, where the tangent line passes
through the point (2, 0).
I know that there will be two such points, one where y is very close to 1, and the
other point where y is a large negative number. However, I do not recall how to
figure out the tangent line equation given a single intercept and solving to find the
