To get a line, you need a slope, and a point, right? Or, knowing the slope of a line and a point where it passes through, that's sufficient to find the equation of the line, yes?

yes.. so how will i find the slope?

Magic. Or, you can differentiate this function first... go ahead now :) Remember, the slope of the tangent line at the point would be its derivative, while the slope of the normal line would be the negative reciprocal of the derivative.
