(b) Now linearization of `f(x)=6x^2-5x+6`  near  `x_0=3` .

`L(x_0)=f(x_0)+(x-x_0)f'(x_0)` .

`f(3)=45` .


So,     `L(3)=45+(x-3)31`

or,      `L(3)=31x-48.`

This is the required linearization of f(x) near x_0=3.

Given function is   f(x)=`6x^2-5x+6` .

To linearize a function f(x) near a point `x=x_0` , we symply give the Taylor's expansion of the first order about `x=x_0.`

i.e.      `L(x_0)=f(x_0)+(x-x_0)f'(x_0)`    where `f'=d/dx f(x)`

Now (a) we want to linearize the given function f(x) near `x_0=8` .



so,    `f'(8)=12.8-5=91` .

Now Linearization of f(x) near `x_0=8`  is given by
