For fiddler crabs, the weight of the claw can be modeled as
f(w) 0.11w1.54 pounds
when the weight of the body is w pounds.t
Note that f(w) is increasing and concave up for all w> 0.
For positive values of w, will a linearization of foverestimate or underestimate the function values? Explain
the function output
a line tangent to the curve. Since f is concave down
the curve except at the y-intercept
, the tangent line at any point on fwill lie above
A linearization follows
Therefore, a linearization will overestimate
values
