To find the linear approximation of a function, you use the formula: ( L(x) = f(a) + f'(a)(x-a) ), where ( f(x) ) is the function, ( a ) is the point at which you want to approximate, and ( f'(x) ) is the derivative of the function.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
