(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the value of f(x) = (sqrrt e^x +3) at x=0.08 obtained from the tangent to the graph at x=0 is...?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i used linear approximation.

(sqrrt e^o +3) + (1/2(sqrrt3+e^0)(0.08)

i got an answer but i know its wrong. i got like 1.72 or something.

did i do it all wrong?
