he had clear. So when you right here. So the tangent line at point. A bee has slope m equals D Y over DX access equal to a and the form of the equation we use is gonna be point slope, which is why minus B equals m times X minus a. So we have m, which is our derivative d over d x of two X cubed minus X square plus two when X is equal to one and this gives for so the line equation is why minus three is equal to four terms X minus one, which is equal to four x minus one.
