In order to find the slope of the given function at a specified point, first find the derivative of the function, then evaluate the derivative of the function using the given x-value.

Given: `f(theta)=3cos(theta)-2theta, (0, 3)`

`f'(theta)=-3sin(theta)-2`

`f'(0)=-3sin(0)-2`

`f'(0)=-3(0)-2`

`f'(0)=-2`
