# Find the Taylor polynomial T3(x) for the function f centered at the number a. Graph f and T3 on the same screen.3. f(x) =ex, a = 1

To determine

To find: The Taylor polynomial T3(x) for f(x)=ex centered at a=1 and graph f and the polynomial.

Explanation

Formula used:

Taylor polynomial:

Let nth degree Taylor polynomial of f at a is denoted by Tn(x) and is defined as,

Tn(x)=i=0nf(i)(a)i!(xa)i=f(a)+f(a)1!(xa)+f(a)2!(xa)2++f(n)(a)n!(xa)n

And f is the sum of its Taylor series, f(x)=n=0f(n)(a)n!(xa)n.

Calculation:

The given function is f(x)=ex, centered at a=1.

The first derivative of f(x) is f(x)=ex and the corresponding value at a=1 is f(1)=e1=e.

The second derivative is f(x)=ex and the corresponding value at a=1 is f(1)=e1=e.

The third derivative is f(x)=ex and corresponding value at a=1 is f(1)=e1=e.

Substitute these values in the formula of Taylor series as follows
