(a) Approximate f by a Taylor polynomial with degree n at the number a.(b) Use Taylor’s Inequality to estimate the accuracy of the approximation f ( x ) ≈ T n ( x ) when x lies in the given interval.(c) Check your result in part (b) by graphing | R n ( x ) | . f ( x ) = e x 2 ,     a = 0 ,     n = 3 ,     0 ≤ x ≤ 0.1

To determine

(a)

To approximate:

The function f by a Taylor polynomial with degree n at the number a

Explanation

1) Concept:

The Taylor polynomial centred at a is

Tnx=i=0nfiai!x-ai

=f0a0!x-a0+fa1!x-a+f2a2!x-a2+f3a3!x-a3+

2) Given:

fx=ex2,   a=0,  n=3,  0x0.1

3) Calculation:

f0x=ex2 and f00=1

f1x=2xex2 and f10=0

f2x=ex2(2+4x2) and f20=2

f3x=ex2(

To determine

(b)

To estimate:

The accuracy of the approximation fxTn(x) by using Taylor’s Inequality.

To determine

(c)

To sketch:

The graph of Rnx to check it with part (b)
