Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think there is a typo in the question. Is it f(26) = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You only have two points. You have no choice but to consider linear estimation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2remember that you can graph a line with two points. like the picture I drawn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i'll try reposting the question too, if anyone else is confused. I copied it from the file im working on and pasted it so it took away the powers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i still approach it the same way Victorarana?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is the information we have. a point (25,f(25))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and the slope of a tangent line at that point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like we told you before, you can aproximate the value of the function with a straight line
