(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the slope of the tangent line of f at the given point.

2. Relevant equations

f(x)= x^3 + x at (2,10)

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to get the answer using the power rule, but I want to know the algebraic way of doing it

I get stuck at x^3 + x - 10/ x -2 how do I get rid of the x-2 in the bottom ?
