How can I linearize that function? f(x) = (x^3 - 2x + 4)^2 where a=1 (step by step)

    do you know how to expand a function such as \[\left( x ^{2} +3\right)^{2}\] You multiply the first term by the first term, then 1st by 2nd, then 2nd by 1st, then 2nd by 2nd Do you know what im talking about

    @Skaematik Can't we use a formula there ?

    Formula to expand (x^2+3)^2 (a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2

    f(a)= (a^3 - 2a + 4)^2 then, f'(a)= ? Diffrentiate f(a) and find f'(a)

    Why cant you just expand and take the natural log of both sides?

    I imagine it's: f'(a) = 2.(3x^2 - 2.1 + 0), right?

    This is an explanation I copied from a site Starting with y = ax^b, we can take logs to any base c on both sides: logc(y) = b logc(x) + logx (a) So the graph of logc y vs. logcx is linear, with slope b and y-intercept equal to logc a.

    if it is f-1(a) when a = 2... set the first equation equal to 2, which will happen when x = 1. So, f-1(2) = 1. Now if you want f-1'(x), you have: = 1 / f'(f-1(x)) so 1/ f'(1) find the derivative of f(X): 3x^2 + 2 so, answer = 1/(3(1) +2) = 1/5. Now just replace a = 1 instead of a = 2. Easy.

    Imagine that I've a new function: f(x) = x^3 a=1 and also I try to apply that formula --> L(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(x-a) L(x) = f(a^3) + f'(3a^2)(a^3-1) L(x) = (1^3) + f'(3.1^2)(1^3-1) L(x) = 1 + 3.(0) L(x) = 1 Is it right?

    Do you know that a linear function has a point (x1,y1) (Let) and a slope m (Let),Anyways Thanks a lot @g152xx And @Pauloading Your'e welcome.

    @Pauloading It sounds right 2me. Unless you wanted the answer in the form L(x) = f(a)+f'(a)(x-a) instead of simplifying it.....

    we have the formula, L(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(x-a) why don't we use it directly ?? a=1 f(1) = 9 f'(1)=6 L(x) = 9+6(x-1) = 6x +3

    d/da((a^3-2 a+4)^2) Using the chain rule, d/da((a^3-2 a+4)^2) = 2 u ( du)/( da), where u = a^3-2 a+4 and ( du^2)/( du) = 2 u: 2 (a^3-2 a+4) (d/da(a^3-2 a+4)) Differentiate the sum term by term and factor out constants: 2 (a^3-2 a+4) (d/da(a^3)-2 (d/da(a))+d/da(4)) The derivative of 4 is zero: 2 (a^3-2 a+4) (d/da(a^3)-2 (d/da(a))+0) The derivative of a is 1: 2 (a^3-2 a+4) (d/da(a^3)-2 1) The derivative of a^3 is 3 a^2: Answer: | | 2 (a^3-2 a+4) (3 a^2-2)
