# Math Help - Local Linearization!

1. ## Local Linearization!

What is the local linearization of e^(x^2) near x = 2?

i need help with this bad johnny, i just dont know how to do it
thanks

2. Local linearization means the tangent line of $f(x)=e^{(x^2)}$ at $x=2$.

The line is $y=m\cdot x + C$, where m is the slope and C is a constant.

$m=f'(x)$ at x=2. Find C by plugging the point (2,f(2)).
