1. ## Linearize

Hello
I need to linearize y=10/(a+cx)

Thank you

2. ## Re: Linearize

in general a function $f(x)$ can be linearized about a point $x_0$ as

$f(x) \approx f(x_0) + f^\prime(x_0)(x-x_0)$

$f(x) = 10 \dfrac{1}{a+c x}$

think you can figure it out from here?

NO i cant can you solve it for me ?

4. ## Re: Linearize

Have you not taken a Calculus course? If you haven't where did you get this problem?

5. ## Re: Linearize

in statistic classes i just need to linearize this to work with it in excel

6. ## Re: Linearize

and romsek thank you but i think that i need other way to solve it . i need to use linear regresion not derivate

7. ## Re: Linearize

how about if you explain the entire problem to us

8. ## Re: Linearize

Do you know what "linear regression" means?
