To find the equation of the normal line at a given point, we need to determine the slope of the tangent line at that point and then find the negative reciprocal of that slope.

To find the slope of the tangent line, we take the derivative of the function f(x).

The derivative of f(x) = x^3e^(-x) + x^3 can be found using the product rule and the chain rule.

The derivative is f'(x) = 3x^2e^(-x) - x^3e^(-x) + 3x^2.

To find the slope at x = -5, we substitute -5 into the derivative:

f'(-5) = 3(-5)^2e^(-(-5)) - (-5)^3e^(-(-5)) + 3(-5)^2.

Simplifying this expression gives us the slope of the tangent line at x = -5.

Once we have the slope, we can find the negative reciprocal to get the slope of the normal line.

Finally, we can use the point-slope form of a line, y - y1 = m(x - x1), where (x1, y1) is the given point on the function, and m is the slope of the normal line.

Substituting the values, we can find the equation of the normal line.

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.
