from whichita to steroids

#### Storyboard Text

• In order to find my way to Steroids, I have to first get out of Witkhita, by finding the equation to a tangent line to the curve y=13-10x-3x2﻿ at the point (-4,5).
• Silly Alex Rodriguez, you misspelled "Wichita" and you'll never figure out the problem.﻿
• Well first, we have to plug the proper information into the equation so that the limit as X approaches 0 is (f(-4-h)-5)/h﻿
• I guess you're right.  I can't do as well without my steroids in my system.﻿
• After this, we plug the whole function into the original curve equation.﻿
• then, after distributing and combining like terms, we come to lim x>h = (14h-3h2﻿)/h
• ﻿and then we find the answer to that of 14 and finish right?
• ﻿No dummy! you have to plug it back in to the point-slope formula!
• oh of course... that would be y-5=14(x+4) which is the final answer﻿
• There you go, now you can get to your steroids.﻿
• Thank you imaginary math lion! Now I can finally perform well!﻿
