For f (θ) = √3.cos² (θ) + sen (2θ), a slope of the tangent line, a function at θ = π / 6, is it?

I don't think there is an attachment, other than possibly the translation from Portuguese to English.
I see post #1 in Portuguese, but the quoted text in post #2 is in English.

A better translation is, I believe, the following:
If ##f(\theta) = \sqrt 3 \cos^2(\theta) + \sin(\theta)##, find the slope of the tangent to the curve when ##\theta = \frac \pi 6##.​

@leticia beira, have you tried taking the derivative, ##f'(\theta)## and evaluating it at ##\theta = \frac \pi 6##? That seems to be what the question is asking for.
