Use a linear approximation (or differentials) to estimate the given number.

  • calculus -

    y = e^x
    y' = e^x
    at x=1, y=1
    The line through (0,1) with slope=1 is
    y = x+1

    so, e^0.01 ~ 1+0.01 = 1.01

    Note that e^x = 1 + x + 1/2 x^2 + ...
    so as a line, e^x ~ 1+x near x=0.
