Let f(x)=3x^42x^2+3
a) find f'(x)
Answer: f'(x)=12x^34x
b) find the slope of the line tangent to the graph of f at x=3.
Answer:312
So I got those firs two right but what I need help with is part C which is
c) find an equation of the line tangent to the graph of f at x=3

to the power of, for example x squared or x cubed

surely by now you know that the line through (h,k) with slope m is
yk = m(xh)
you have h=3,m=312, and k=f(3)
plug and chug.
