The curve 1 became very famous after 2 challenged 3 to apply something he had discovered. 3 did it easily. Identify 1,2 and 3.

    The Folium of Descartes, Descartes and Fermat.


  4. 1 is the “Folium of Descartes”. Descartes(2) had challenged Fermat(3) to find the slope of the curve at an arbitary point: something which Fermat did rather easily.

    Descartes challenged Fermat to find the tangent line to the curve at an arbitrary point since Fermat had recently discovered a method for finding tangent lines. Fermat solved the problem easily, something Descartes was unable to do. Since the invention of calculus, the slope of the tangent line can be found easily using implicit differentiation.

    1 is Folium of Descartes. Descartes (in 2) had challenged Fermat (in 3) to find the tangent to this curve at an arbitrary point.

    This curve “Folium of Descartes” was proposed by Rene Descartes. Descartes challenged Fermat to find the tangent to the curve at any point, which he did very easily.

    1. Folium of Descartes
    2. Renne Descartes
    3. Pierre de Fermat

    The curve was first proposed by Descartes in 1638. Its claim to fame lies in an incident in the development of calculus. Descartes challenged Fermat to find the tangent line to the curve at an arbitrary point since Fermat had recently discovered a method for finding tangent lines. Fermat solved the problem easily, something Descartes was unable to do. Since the invention of calculus, the slope of the tangent line can be found easily using implicit differentiation.

  25. The curve in 1 is the Folium of Descartes which was first proposed by Descartes(Pic 2) in 1638. Its claim to fame lies in an incident in the development of calculus. Descartes challenged Fermat(Pic 3) to find the tangent line to the curve at an arbitrary point since Fermat had recently discovered a method for finding tangent lines.

  27. 2 is Descatres, and 3 is Fermat.
    1 is the Folium of Descartes, and Descartes asked Fermat to find the tangent of this curve, which he couldnt do so himself.


  28. sand

    folium of descartes. descartes challenged fermat (pic3) to find the tangent to this curve, which fermat did easily by the \’methods\’ he had found.

    Folium of Descartes, René Descartes, Pierre de Fermat


  30. Chandler

    1. A Cycloid.

    2. Rene Descartes.

    3. Pierre de Fermat.

    Descartes challenged Fermat to find a method of drawing a tangent to the cycloid having discovered himself how to construct one and Fermat succeeded in doing so.

    Descartes asked Fermat to find a tangent to a curve at an arbitrary point, when Fermat was thought to be the messiah of tangent lines..
