Hey everyone, quick question:
My workings:Approximate ln(0.6) by using the MacLaurin series expansion for ln(1-x), with an error guaranteed to be less than 0.01. Show your error estimate.
However, my calculator gives me -0.510826.Since we want ln(0.6), but make use of the series expansion for ln(1-x), x = 0.4
Let be the error estimate.
So therefore
Where did I go wrong?
