A linearization is a method of approximating values of a function using a tangent line

  • anonymous
do you have a specific question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Given a point x = a, the linearization of f(x) at x = a is L(x) = f'(a)(x-a)+f(a)

No I don't. I have a free response tomorrow and thats all my teacher said to know.

at points very close to x = a on the graph of f(x), L(x) can give a decent approximation
anonymous
  • anonymous
L is an approximation of the slope at f(a)
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, not of the slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
it approximates values of f(x) (the function)
anonymous
  • anonymous
So basically find the slope that the point that is given and plug it in?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you need the slope at the point, which is f'(a)

All a linearization is is the equation for a tangent line to a function at a point x = a

Oh ok. That makes sense. Thank you
