Taylor polynomials

First, find the Taylor polynomial Pn (n is a subscript) of order n for the function f with base point Xο (ο is a subscript). Then plot both f and Pn on the same axes. Choose the plotting window to show clearly the relationship between f and Pn.

f(X) = sin X + cos X, n = 4, Xο (ο is a subscript) = 0
