5.5 Linearization and Differentials November 01, 2017 For a function y = f(x), the equation of the tangent line at (a, f(a)) is or Definition: Linearization If f is differentiable at x = a, then the approximating function is the linearization of f at a. The approximation f(x) L(x) is the standard linear approximation of f at a. The point x = a is the center .
