ln(x)at the point a = 12.

**bobpursley**, Friday, June 21, 2013 at 5:39amL(x)=ln(z)+delta(x-z)*dL/dx

L(x)=ln(12)+1/12*(x-12)

so for example, what is Ln(13):

Ans: Ln(13)=ln(12)+1/12*1

checking that from a calculator:

ln(12)== 2.48490665

ln(13)== 2.56494936

difference 0.08004271

1/12== 0.0833333333
