Question

Hi, I am having a hard time figuring out what the equation of the tangent line is in this problem. When I did it I got y=-8x+8 but it's wrong. If someone could help me figure how to get the right answer that would be very helpful!

 

Consider the given function and point.
f(x) = -7x4 11x2 - 4, (1, 0)
(a) Find an equation of the tangent line to the graph of the function at the given point.
