#### Explanation:

1) Find the first derivative of f(x).

2) Plug x = 0 into f '(x) to find the slope at x.

3) Plug x value into f(x) to find the y coordinate of the tangent point. 4) Combine the slope from step 2 and point from step 3 using the point-slope formula to find the equation for the tangent line.
