BrainMass Posting Solution# MATH 7739

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 ...

Solution Summary

Taylor polynomials are discussed. The solution is detailed and well presented.
