Step 1 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseWe have given the function f(x)= 4x2 +3x, a=-2 a. We have to find f'(a) Replacex by a in the given function We have f(a) 4a2 +3a Differentiate the above function with respect to a f (a) 2(4a)3(1) 8a+3 Substitute a-2 in the above derivative f-2) 8(-2)+3 =-13 Thus the value of f'(a) is -13 fullscreen
