okay i have this question that i cant figure out i need some help...

please please please

Find and equation of the tangent line to the curve y = 3x^2 - 2x +1 that is perpendicular to the line 3x - 2y +2 = 1. Write your solution in the slope-intercept form.

okay i just rearrange the second equation and found the slope of the line i need to find which is -3/2. Then to find the equation of the tangent i took the derivative of the first equation and now what? this is where i get stuck..... anyone have an idea?
