To find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function ( f(x) = 3 - 2x ) at the point ( (-1, 5) ), we need to find the derivative of the function ( f(x) ) and evaluate it at ( x = -1 ). The derivative of ( f(x) ) with respect to ( x ) is ( f'(x) = -2 ). So, at ( x = -1 ), the slope of the tangent line is ( f'(-1) = -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.
