**Steve**, Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 6:28amthe linearization is just finding a straight line that is close to the curve at the given point. That is just the tangent line. So, since when

y = √(1+2x),

y' = 1/√(1+2x)

y(0) = 1

y'(0) = 1

and the point-slope form for the line is

y-1 = 1(x-0)

y = x+1

A=1 and B=1

Check the graphs at

You can see that at (0,1) the line and the curve are very close.
