Derivatives of Polynomials and Exponential Functions

I have to understand step by step how to navigate Chapter 3.1 Derivatives of Polynomials and Exponential Functions. However, I don't understand how to get a tangent line from a Y=f (x) if x=a, then use that to find f '(a). I'm given the following: Find equations of the tangent line and normal line to the curve at the give

I need help figuring out this problem.

Initial equation - 100 +10B + 20N - B2 - N2 + 0.5 BN ( B2= B to the secondpower and N2 equals N to the second power) I want to get the first derivative of N so I got this far: 10-2b + .5n =0 .5n=2b -10 N= 4b -20. I can't figure out how they got the answer for N ? Also, why is the number 10 without the B when
