    Basics: A Taylor Polynomial is an approximation of an elementary function f(x) centered at a particular value of x, say at x = c. This means that if P(c) is the polynomial approximation of a function f(x) at x = c, then P(c) = f(c) i.e. the original function and the polynomial approximation will return the same value at x=c.
    This also means that the graphs of f(x) and P(x) in the neighborhood of x = c will appear the same.
    Note: Polynomials are defined ...
