Find the slope of the tangent line using a specific formula

g(x)=3t-t^{2}

at (0,0)

2. Relevant equations

Im told to use this equation by the book

f(c+deltax) - f(c)

Deltax

3. The attempt at a solution

Everytime i plug it in by way of the books style i get 2c. and then you are supposed to plug in the x value which gives me 0. But the right answer is 3
