Why? Linear Approximation uses the fact that curves tend to lie close to the tangent line for points close to the point of tangency. Linearization Approximations are thus usually more accurate for numbers closer to the original point. We could expect our estimate for 3:30 would be more accurate than our estimate for 4:00.
