Suppose that f is a function with f (25) = 61 and f (25) = 3. If you have no further information, what is your best estimate of f(26.5)?

You could do a linear estimation.

I think there is a typo in the question. Is it f(26) = 3

You only have two points. You have no choice but to consider linear estimation.

  • anonymous
Do you know what a linear estimation is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, its f (25) = 3. and thanks to everyone helping!

f(25) = 3 and f(25) = 61???
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, its f^1
anonymous
  • anonymous
remember that you can graph a line with two points. like the picture I drawn
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mmm wait a minute.
anonymous
  • anonymous
This is odd. The question is wrong and the answer is giiven and gets a medal too! :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
that looks like a vertical line,
anonymous
  • anonymous
like x = 25
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay 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

Suppose that f is a function with f (25) = 61 and f^1 (25)= 3. If you have no further information, what is your best estimate of f(26.5)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
would i still approach it the same way Victorarana?
anonymous
  • anonymous
mmm with the f^1 you mean derivative i suppose?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok you can integrate then.
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry im new to calculus and new to this website, im not entirely sure what you mean :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't worry, let me think
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got it. let me make a draw
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay thanks a lot! i appreciate it!

that is the information we have. a point (25,f(25))
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the slope of a tangent line at that point
anonymous
  • anonymous
like we told you before, you can aproximate the value of the function with a straight line
anonymous
  • anonymous
but only at the point near x = 25
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it clear?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah that makes sense! Thank you VERY much :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
then you can do the rest by yourself =)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep, thanks again!
anonymous
  • anonymous
You're welcome
