Find the equation of a curve having the given slope that passes through the indicated point:


The slope of a curve is equal to the first derivative of a curve with respect to x. In this case, y' = dy/dx. Let's consider the given slope of a curve

Multiply both sides of the equation by dx, we have

Integrate on both sides of the equation, we have
In order to get the value of arbitrary constant, substitute the value of the given point which is P(5, 4) to the above equation, we have
Therefore, the equation of a curve is
