Homework Help: Calculus-Solved - Incorrect

Posted by Alaina on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 6:58pm.

calculate delta y for f(x)= x^(3/2) with x= 4 and delta x= dx=0.1

delta y= f(x+delta x)- f(x)
= f(4.1) - f(4)
delta y= f(4.1)-8

f(x + delta x)= 8 + 3/2*x^(1/2)*0.1
= 8 + 0.15x^(1/2)
= 8 + 0.30
= 8.30

delta y= 8.30 - 8
delta y= 0.30

but this is wrong. why is it wrong?
