so, at (e,1), the slope is 1/e

the line is thus

(y-1)/(x-e) = 1/e

y = 1/e (x-e) + 1

y = x/e

at x=3, the line has y-value

y = 3/e

y = 1.104

Actual value of ln3 = 1.099

Since the curve is concave down, it will lie below the tangent line, so any linear approximation using just the tangent line will be too high.
