To find the equation of the line tangent to the graph of y=3x^2-6x+2 at the point (3,11), we need to find the slope of the tangent line at that point.

First, we find the derivative of the given function y=3x^2-6x+2. The derivative of y with respect to x is dy/dx = 6x - 6.

Next, we substitute x=3 into the derivative to find the slope at the point (3,11). dy/dx = 6(3) - 6 = 12.

Therefore, the slope of the tangent line at the point (3,11) is 12.

Using the point-slope form of a linear equation, y - y1 = m(x - x1), where (x1, y1) is the given point and m is the slope, we substitute the values (3,11) and 12 into the equation.

y - 11 = 12(x - 3)

Simplifying the equation, we get:

y - 11 = 12x - 36

Rearranging the equation to the standard form, we have:

12x - y = 25

Therefore, the equation of the line tangent to the graph of y=3x^2-6x+2 at the point (3,11) is 12x - y = 25.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
