Hey there, I need a little push in the right direction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the question:

The slope of the tangent line to the graph of the exponential function

y=2^x at the point (0,1) is lim x approaches 0 (2^x-1)/x.

Estimate the slope to three decimal places.

Where I am getting confused is which formula do I plug (x) into to find a secant slope?

I hope I asked the right question.

Thanks
