Develop a function M-file named fun_xb that evaluates the following series:

See attached file for full problem description.

where values of x and n are passed to the function through arguments. The foregoing series is a truncated Mclaurin expansion. (Taylor series expansion about the point x=0) of log(1+x) and converges for -1<x<1. Knowing this, test the function for selected x values such as x= -0.5 and 0.5, with n=1, 2,3,5,10,20,50 and compare graphically with log(1+x). (Convergence becomes increasingly difficult as x approaches -1 or 1.)
