At the indicated point, for each function in Problems 21-24, find(a) the slope of the tangent line.(b) the instantaneous rate of change of the function. y = ( x 3 + 2 x ) 4  at  x =2

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The slope of the tangent line for the function, y=(x3+2x)4, at x=2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The function is y=(x3+2x)4.

Formula used:

The power rule, if f(x)=xn, then,

f(x)=nxn1

The property of differentiation, if a function is of the form, g(x)=cf(x), then,

g(x)=cf(x)

The property of differentiation, if a function is of the form f(x)=u(x)+v(x), then,

f(x)=u(x)+v(x)

The product rule, if f(x)=u(x)v(x), then

f(x)=u(x)v(x)+v(x)u(x)

The property of differentiation, if a function is of the form y=un, where u=g(x),

dydx=nun1dudx

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

y=(x3+2x)4

Consider (x3+2x) to be u,

y=u4

Differentiate both sides with respect to x,

dydx=ddx(u4)

Simplify using the power rule,

dydx=4u41dudx=4u3dudx

Substitute (x3+2x
