To find the equation of the tangent line to the curve y=x^2+2e^x at (0,2), we need to find the slope of the tangent line at that point.

First, we find the derivative of the curve y=x^2+2e^x with respect to x.

The derivative of x^2 is 2x, and the derivative of 2e^x is 2e^x.

So, the derivative of y=x^2+2e^x is dy/dx = 2x + 2e^x.

Next, we substitute x=0 into the derivative to find the slope at (0,2).

dy/dx = 2(0) + 2e^0 = 2(1) = 2.

Therefore, the slope of the tangent line at (0,2) is 2.

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 can substitute the values to find the equation of the tangent line.

Plugging in the values, we have y - 2 = 2(x - 0).

Simplifying, we get y - 2 = 2x.

Rearranging the equation, we have y = 2x + 2.

Therefore, the equation of the tangent line to the curve y=x^2+2e^x at (0,2) is y = 2x + 2.

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.
