Suppose you find the linear approximation to a differentiable function at a local maximum of that function. Describe the graph of the linear approximation.
Step 1 of 3
SOLUTION STEP 1 At local maximum the derivative of the function will be equal to 0,ie the slope is 0 at that point.Thus the graph of the linear approximation is a straight horizontal line.
