If f(2) = 2.5 and f'(2) = 2.5, then f(2.5) is approximately...
I have no idea how to do this without an equation.

Use linearization:
f(2.5) = f(2)+(2.52.0)*f'(2) (approx.)
=f(2)+0.5f'(2)
I'll let you complete the answer. 
f(2) + 0.5f'(2) = 2.5 + (0.5)(2.5) = 2.5  1.25 = 1.25, right? Thank you so much!

Correct.
The general formula for linearization is
f(x+h)=f(x)+hf'(x) (approximately)
In general, the smaller the value of h, the more accurate the answer would be.
