Question: Att= 55 seconds, an object moving along a straight path is 47 meters from its origin. If the velocity at that time isv(55) = −3 meters per second, use a tangent line approximation to predict the object’s position at one minute (t= 60 seconds).

So I know that the equation for a tangent line is:

T(x) = f(x) + f'(x) (x-c)

But I am not sure if that is how I solve this question as I'm trying to predict the object's position.

Any help is appreciated.
