Approximate the square root of 64.3, y=x^(1/2). Starting point is the square root of 64.

  • college calc - ,

    y = x^(1/2)
    dy/dx = (1/2)x^(-1/2)

    dy = 1/(2√x) dx
    when x = 64, dx = .3

    dy = (1/2√64)(.3) = (1/16)(.3) = appr .01875

    so √64.3 = 8.01875

    actual √64.3 by calculator = 8.018729

    error is .000022
