To find the slope of the function (f(x) = -xe^x - x^2) at (x = 1), we need to take the derivative of (f(x)) with respect to (x), and then evaluate it at (x = 1). The derivative of (f(x)) is (f'(x) = -e^x - xe^x - 2x). Evaluating (f'(x)) at (x = 1) gives (f'(1) = -e^1 - 1e^1 - 2(1) = -e - e - 2 = -2e - 2). Therefore, the slope of (f(x)) at (x = 1) is (-2e - 2).
