I am asked to find the equation of the tangent line to the curve f(x)=sin(x)+sin^2(x) at the point (0,0). Can anyone explain how I should approach this problem? I understand that I must differentiate the function, but I can't see how to come up with the equation for the line. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
