# Math Help - Local Linearization Problem

1. ## Local Linearization Problem

Hey all, got a local linearization problem that I'm very much stuck on. I've read the chapter in the book over and over but still cannot grasp what I have to do with this type of problem. The problem is this:

If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Local linearization, would that be the derivative?

If so, $f(x)=e^{x^2}$

$f'(x)=e^{x^2}2x$

$f'(3)=6e^{9}$
