Linear Approximation Non-calculator application of the tangent line. Used to estimate values of f(x) at ‘difficult’ x-values. (ex: 1.03, 2.99, 7.01) Steps: a.Find the equation of the tangent line to f(x) at an ‘easy’ value nearby. b.Plug the ‘difficult’ x-value in to get a reasonable estimate of what the actual y-value will be.

3
1. Find the equation of the tangent line to f(x) at x = 1.

4
2. Use the equation of the tangent line to f(x) at x = 1 to estimate f(1.01). This estimate will be accurate as long as the x-value is very close to the point of tangency.
