**Questions Regarding to Tangents and Concavity**

Find the tangent to the cycloid $x=r(\theta - \sin \theta)$, $y=r(1-\cos \theta)$ when $\theta = \frac{\pi}{4}$ and $r$ > $0$. Determine the concavity for all values of $\theta$. (Do not eliminate the parameter)- Find the point of the parametric curve $x=t^2+1$ and $y=t^3+t^2$, in which the tangent is horizontal.
- Find the tangent to the curve $x=3 \cos t$, $y=4 \cos t$ by:
