Find an equation for the tangent line

I am just having trouble on how to find an equation for the tangent line in this problem (last part):


1) Let f be defined by f(x)=3x - 3x^2 - 3, and let a be constant.


f(a) = 3a-3a^2-3 and f'(a) = 3 - 6a


An equation for the tangent line to y = f(x) at x = a is

y =

If anyone knows how to do this I would greatly appreciate it!
