A linearization function is defined as follows:
Where a is the whole number of x.
We know that:
`f(x) = sqrt(a)` and therefore:
Consequently, the linearization function is:
For 25.07, x=25.07 and a=25:
Therefore, the linear approximation of the square root of 25.07 is 5.007.
For 24.96, x=24.96 and a=24:
Therefore, the linear approximation of the square root of 24.96 is 4.997.
