    Tangent Line Problem

    I think i have the right answer but im not sure if ive done something wrong, im kind of stuck.

    What is the equation of the tangent line to the graph of:

    f(x) = (x 2)1/2(2x + 5)2/3 at x = 11

    Tangent line will be

     y-f(11) = f'(11) \times (x-11)

    So find f(11)

    then f'(x)

    then f'(11)

    Do you follow?
