Determine the equation of the tangent line at the indicated -coordinate f(x)=e^(-2x)*in(8x) for x=2

The equation of the tangent line in slope-intercept form is y= ?

  • calculus - ,

    I read that as
    f(x) = e^(-2x) ln(8x)

    f'(x) = -2(e^(-2x) ln(8x) + (1/x) e^(-2x) , using the product rule
    f(2) = .0508
    f'(2) = -.0924

    so we have a slope of -.0924 and the point (2,.0508
    y = -.0924x + b
    sub in the point
    .0508 = -.0924(2) + b
    b = .2356

    y = -.0924x + .2356

    (Was expecting "nicer" numbers)
