    Taylor series expansion (simple)

    Need to linearize the following functions using the Taylor method with 1 as the point of expansion:

    A) U = ln(c)
    B) U = 1 - e^(-c/2)
    C) U = c^(1/2)

    By linearlize do you just mean f(1)+f'(1)(x-1)?

    All I know is that we're supposed to use something like this:



    It doesn't look too difficult and I did get some solutions out but I have no idea if I'm actually on the right track.
