    A. The Taylor series for about is given by

    Since for all n, we have for all n, whence

    B. Below is a plot of along with the four-term Taylor approximation computed above.

    C. The first six terms of the Taylor expansion of are as follows:

    This is a much better approximation, especially close the origin, ...
