Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0didn't see the x, btw is it (e^x)(−4 + 3x + 3x^2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well yeah, but he doesn't specify... People use the freakin parenthesis, we have to guess what the heck was the original problem... Is (−4 + 3x + 3x^2) in the power too?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first input the value of x as g(0) to fine the value of y. Then find the derivative using the product rule. factor out the e^x, and collect like terms. Then input the value of x into the derivative to find the slope. g'(x)=m. then use point slope formula.
