Use linear approximation to estimate the number sqrt(9.05)

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/06/2020 - 04:48 PM

Linear approximation is used when the value needed is close to a known value.
Here, we know sqrt(9)=3.
Let
f(x)=sqrt(x)
f'(x)=1/(2sqrt(x))
Apply linear approximation
f(9.05)=f(9)+f'(x)dx
=sqrt(9)+0.05/(2sqrt(9))
=3+.05/(6)
=3.008333
exact value is 3.008322, estimate is off by .0004%

Five times the sum of the digits of a two-digit number is 13 less than the original number. If you reverse the digits in the two-digit number, four times the sum of its two digits is 21 less than the reversed two-digit number. (Hint: You can use variables to represent the digits of a number. If a two-digit number has the digit x in tens place and y in one’s place, the number will be 10x + y. Reversing the order of the digits will change their place value and the reversed number will 10y + x.) The difference of the original two-digit number and the number with reversed digits is .
