  1. well, you take steps of ∆x = 0.1
    Then you have the next y-step is ∆y = ∆x * dy/dx, using the tangent line as an approximation.
    That gives you the next y-value.
    Do it 3 times. What do you get?
    It might help to make a table:

    x.....y.....y'.....∆x.....∆y
    1.....1.....2.....0.1 ...0.2
    1.1 1.2 2.54 0.1 ....0.254
    and so on

  2. x......y........y'......∆x......∆y
    1.2 1.3 2.89 0.1 0.28
    1.3 1.5 3.55 0.1 0.35
    1.4 1.65 4.12 0.1 0.41
    I think is b, is that correct?

  3. No. To complete your table,
    x......y........y'......∆x......∆y
    1.00 1.00 2.00 0.10 0.20
    1.10 1.20 2.54 0.10 0.254
    1.20 1.454 3.314 0.1 0.331
    1.30 1.785
    So, (C)
