# Math Help - What is Taylor's Inequality in really really simple terms?

1. ## What is Taylor's Inequality in really really simple terms?

Can someone explain "Taylor's Inequality" in entirely nonmathmatical terms?
I know its kinda weird request but i am so easily confused with this stuff.

Thanks alot!

Well, i don't know the proof of the inequality itself, so i really can't explain in much detail. i can tell you however, that it is used to find the error in the taylor series approximation of a function.

see Taylor.pdf to see it in action. start from page 3

Uses the mean value theorem iirc.
