Hi,

How do i find equation of the tangent for F(x)=x^2*(e^(2x)) at point x=1

I differentiate this and get this using product rule
F'(x)=2xe^2x*(x+2)

Then I do what again providing my work is correct? I know the answer but not how to get to the answer.

If you know the slope at x=1, and the y value at x=1,  can you find a line through that point with that slope?
