### Slope Predictor Formula : Finding a Tangent Line to a Curve

1. Apply the slope-predictor formula to find the slope of the line tangent to
y = f(x) = (2x+4)2 - (2x-4)2. Then write the equation of the line tangent to the graph of f at the point (3, f(3)).

My attempt...
I found y first by:
f(x) = (2x+4)2 - (2x-4)2
f(x) = (4x2+16x+16) - (4x2-16x+16) READ MORE »
