What is the point of tangency – no calculus, please

Problem Two lines intersect the graph . The secant line intersects the graph at point A and B and the tangent line which is parallel to the secant, touches the graph at point E. You can read the coordinates of A and B from the graph but not E. What are the coordinates of E?

Solving problems by equations and graphs

Problems need not always be solved by equations alone. Problems that involve setting up equations can be solved using graphs also. This requires knowledge of interpreting equations in x as a function of x. This is an important knowledge as it will be handy in solving problems in calculus.  The key to the solution of
