Expert Answer

Step 1

To calculate the value of P2(x) for the nth Maclaurin polynomial of the function f(x)=sec(x) where, the value of n=2. Now, first derivate the function then use the Maclaurin polynomial to calculate the value of P2(x).

Step 2

According to the definition of the Maclaurin polynomial for function f(x) which is cantered at a=0 is shown below,
