Homework Help: Calculus derivative

Posted by Steff on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at 7:54am.

Find the slope and an equation of the tangent line to the graph of the function f at the specified point.

f(x)=-1/3x^2+5x+5: (-1, -1/3)

Answer: f(x)=-2/3x + 5

y=-2/3x -1

I re-worked the problem and got f'(x)=5, y=5x+ 14/3

This is from a multiple choice test and this is not an answer.

Can someone check my work?
