Step 1

The expression for calculating linear approximation is shown on board. We substitute the values of a, f(a), f'(a) to get the required equation of line.

Step 2

To find e^-0.02 , we substitute the value x=0.02 in the expression of linear  approximation.

Step 3

The calculation for % errro...
