# Math Help - slope of the tangent line?

1. ## slope of the tangent line?

I am struggling with this problem:

Find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function below at the point (2, -23).
g
(x) = 5 - 7x2

2. You need to be more clear. What does 7x2 mean?

3. it means 7x^2

4. First find $g'(2)$

Tangent line will be $y+23= g'(2) (x-2)$
