So I have this as the last thing I don't understand before tommorrow's test.. I have tried reading in the book and online, but it's just not clicking for me!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There are so many numbers, and it they seem to just plug them in from nowhere.

Like some example problems would be like sqrt(25.1) and 2.001^5.

Supposedly I use the equation L(x) = f(a) - f'(a)(x-a)? But I have no idea which numbers I plug in where.. is this easier than I'm making it to be?
