Using this, we find our approximation for 3√125.2 is _____

(again, all the 3√, the 3 is inside the v, not 3 times sqrt)

**MathMate**, Monday, September 28, 2009 at 8:14pmIn general,

f(x) ≅ f(x0) + f'(x0)*(x-x0)

For

f(x) = ∛x

f(x) ≅ ∛x0 + (x-x0)/(3∛(x0²))

Let x0=125, x=125.2

f(125.2) = f(125) + (125.2-125)/(3∛(125²))

=5 + (0.2)/(3*25)

=5.0267

Check: 5.0267³ = 125.2001...
