hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know this problem has to do with derivatives and i'm sure its easy, but for some reason i just can't figure it out...

Find equations of both lines through the point (2,-3) that are tangent to the parabola y= x^2 + x

help please...i know the derivative is 2x + 1 ....and that the 2 equations will be linear and pass through the point above, obviously...just not sure where to go from there.
