Use linear approximations to estimate $\sqrt{8}$. Also find the error and percentage error.

Given a circle with a circumference of 56 inches with an error of $\pm{1.2}$ inches. Find the percent error of the area of the circle.

A 12 by 12 square is produced with an error of $\pm{\frac{1}{64}}$ inches in the length of each side. Find the the percent error in the area of one of these squares.
