1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider the following curve. y = 4 + 4x2 - 2x3. (a) Find the slope of the tangent to the curve at the point where x = a. 2. Relevant equations m=y(a+h) - y(a)/h 3. The attempt at a solution 1. m=y(a+h) - y(a)/h = -a^3-a^2+3ah+h^2-4 2. 6a^2 3. -6a^2+8a I know the derivative is equal to the slope, but I don't know how to work that into this specific equation and point. Thank you for any and all help.
