Given: f(x)= x^3 + x^2 - 2x over the closed interval [0,2]

Write the equation of the tangent line to f(x) passing through point A(-1,-2).

*At first glance I knew how to do it, but f(-1) does not equal -2...so do I add a constant onto f(x) to make f(-1) = -2 or what? thanks

    The statement below is false. Correct it by changing two symbols. "The interval (a,b) contains its infimum and its supremum." I'll give you a hint. The interval (a, b) is an open interval. What you need is a closed interval.
