**important math question**

Did you click on the polynomial calc link? You can use Newton's method. I will give you a link in a minute. Oh, no need, this next problem is in fact Newton's method. Draw a sketch f(3) = 5 Put an x at (3,5) slope ay (3,5) = -2 f(x+dx) = f(x) + slope * dx f(3 + .02) = ...

By the way since this particular function is linear, constant slope, there was no need for us to take the limit to find the derivative (slope at x is slope at any x)

this is the definition of the derivative f(x+dx) = 3(x+dx)-2 = 3 x + 3 dx -2 f(x) = 3 x - 2 f(x+dx) - f(x) = 3 dx divide by dx = 3
