I need help for (3+3x)^(1/3). Please help me!

**Steve**, Friday, October 4, 2013 at 12:39amf'(x) = (3x+3)^(-2/3)

f'(0) = 3^(-2/3)

f(0) = 3^(1/3)

So, near x=0,

y-3^(1/3) = 3^(-2/3) x

you can see this graphically at wolframalpha.com if you enter

plot y = (3+3x)^(1/3),y = 3^(-2/3) x + 3^(1/3) for -1<x<1
