Kimberly, as I pointed out to you in another post, it is very important to use brackets in this format to establish the correct order of operation, since we cannot "build" fractions here.
f(x) = 10/(3x^2 + 6 x + 6)
and his answer is correct according to that equation

the way you typed it ....
f'(x) = (-20/3)x + 6
f'(-1) = 20/3 + 6 =38/3

so the slope is 38/3

equation:

y + 10/3 = (38/3)(x+1)
times 3
3y + 10 = 38(x+1)
3y = 38x + 38 - 10
3y = 38x + 28
y = (38/3)x + 28/3

or
38x - 3y = -28
