**MathMate**, Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 6:35pmfor f(x)=sqrt(7+6x)

Calculate the slope at x0=0, i.e.

m=f'(x0)=f'(0)

and the value of y0=f(x0) to give the tangent point (x0, f(x0))=(0,f(0))

The linear approximation at x=0 is given by

y = m(x-x0)+y0

If you have difficulties finding the derivative of f(x), post for more information.
