The Lagrange Remainder of a Taylor Polynomial
where z is some number between x and c The Error of a Taylor Polynomial where M is the maximum value of on the interval [b, c] or [c, b]

Let f be a function that has derivatives of all orders on the
Interval (-1, 1). Assume f(0) = 1, f ‘ (0) = ½, f ”(0) = -1/4, f ’’’(0) = 3/8 and for all x in the interval (0, 1). a. Find the third-degree Taylor polynomial about x = 0 for f. b. Use your answer to part a to estimate the value of f(0.5)

Let f be a function that has derivatives of all orders on the
Interval (-1, 1). Assume f(0) = 1, f ‘ (0) = ½, f ”(0) = -1/4, f ’’’(0) = 3/8 and for all x in the interval (0, 1). What is the maximum possible error for the approximation made in part b?

Estimate the error that results when arctan x is replaced by

Estimate the error that results when ln(x + 1) is replaced by
F ‘’’ (x) has a maximum value at x = -0.1

Find an approximation of ln 1.1 that is accurate to three decimal
places. We just determined that the error using the second degree expansion is

Use a Taylor Polynomial to estimate cos(0.2) to 3 decimal places
If x = 0.2, Alternating Series Test works for convergence

Use a Taylor Polynomial to estimate
with three decimal place accuracy. Satisfies Alternating Series Test
