take the derivative: 4x -2 (power rule) put 1 in for x, like given in problem. so... 4(1)-2 = 2 that would be the slope of the line then to find the point: you have the x-value, 1 (given) you put 1 in for x in the origianl equation. 2(1)^2 - 2(1) +3 = 2 - 2 +3 = 3 so in point-slope form the answer is:
