I don't need an answer, I'm just stumped as to how to properly turn these into point slope form to find the tangent, can anyone guide me through this? Help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe I understand the formulas that are used to solve problems such as these.

It starts by finding the derivative of the function.

After finding the derivative, I can plug in the given points and slope from the derivative into the point slope formula... but when i did this, my answer was wrong. I feel like I'm missing a key idea (or more) that is stopping me from finding this out
