Δf ≈

Estimate the actual change.

(Use decimal notation. Give your answer to five decimal places.)

Δf=

Compute the error and the percentage error in the Linear Approximation.

**bobpursley**, Sunday, October 30, 2011 at 7:23pmlinear approximation means get the slope.

df/dx=-2(2x)/(1+x^2)^2

at at x=3.25, df/dt= -4*3.25/(1+3.25^2)^2=-.0972

df=-.0972*x but x= 3.5-3=.5

df=-.0488

actual

f(3)=2/(10)=1/5

f(3.5)=2/(1+3.5^2)=.150

f(3.5-f(3)=-.050

error (.0488-.050)/.050 about 2 percent

f(3.5)-f(3)=-.350
