Taylor Series

The Taylor series is a polynomial of infinite degree used to represent functions like sine, cube roots, and the exponential function. They're how some calculators (and Physicists) make approximations.

Error Bounds

         

Find the error bound for the \(4^\text{th}\) degree polynomial of
