Find the slope m of the tangent line to the graph of the function at the given point and determine an equation of the tangent line.
f(x)=6x5x^2 at (2, 32)
I have to use the four step process, but seem to be getting stuck...

slope=610x at x=2
slope=6+20=26
that is pretty steep.
y=mx+b
32=26*2 + b
solve for b, and you have the tangent line equation.
y=26x+20 check the math , I did it in my head.
