Suppose that for a twice differentiable function f (x), f '(x) > 0 and f ''(x) > 0 on the interval (1,3). If we use a linear approximation at x = 2 to estimate f (1.9), will that estimate be an underestimate or overestimate, and why?

Underestimate since f '' > 0 on (1, 3)

Overestimate since f '' > 0 on (1,3)

Underestimate since f ' > 0 on (1, 3)

Overestimate since f ' > 0 on (1, 3)
