Find the linearization of at . Then, use it to approximate when .

Recall that you first investigated local linearization by using your calculator to 'zoom in' on a coordinate point until the curvy function appeared to be linear. You then found the equation of that 'line' using two points. You now have a better strategy.

Find the equation of the tangent line at then evaluate .
