Consider the Maclaurin polynomial of degree N for f(x)=e^x.

i---Give an estimate for the error term when we use this to approximate

e^(-1)

ii---For what N will the Maclaurin polynomial at -1 give an approximationg for e^(-1) accurate to 6 decimal places. Compute this approximation.

Well, I know the polynomial is 1+x+x^2/2+x^3/3!+...+x^N/N!

For part i, do you just do 1/e-(1+(-1)+1/2-1/3+......+(-1)^N/N!)

Is this the estimate of the error term? I'm not sure how you do this or part 2?
