equation of tangent

find the equation for the tangent to y = x^4 at the point where x=2
first substitute x=2 into the given equation to find y to get the point (x1,y1)
at which the tangent is required.
find dy/dx and evaluate it at (x1,y1) to get the slope,m of the tangent
then use (y-y1) = m(x-x1) to get the equation of the tangent
