    Taylor Polynomial

    Calculate the taylor Polynomial p2 (x;0) of e^tan(x)

    I understand how to calculate taylor polynomials but how does the
    p2 (x;0) change what I'm supposed to do?

    What does it mean?

    Thanks.

    It probably means expand around x = 0 (so you're actually getting a Maclaurin series) up to degree 2.
