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?

    Hmm. Looks good to me. But you've done a lot of extra work. Using differentials, we approximate delta y = dy

    dy = f'(x) dx
    = 3/2 x^(1/2) dx
    = 3/2 (2) (.1)
    = 0.3
