## Question:

A) Find the slope of the tangent line to the curve {eq}y = 2x^3 {/eq} at the point {eq}(-1, -2) {/eq}.

B) Find the equation of this tangent line in the form {eq}y = mx + b {/eq}.

## Equation:

To find the equation we will first differentiate the function ad the plug-in the value that is the point i the derivative ad the using point slope formula we will write the equation of tangent.

## Answer and Explanation:
