I need to find the equation for the Taylor series formula for each of them. So for the first one, I worked out the Taylor polynomial to be x/2-x^3/48.... I know n=1 from that. But how do I write the rest of the formula? Since it's Maclaurin, I know the formula is [f^(n)(0)(x)^n]/n!, but what numbers do I plug in?
The second is ln(4)+((x-2)/2)-(((x-2)^2)/8)+(((x-2)^3)/24)... So n=0, and the other formula applies: [f^(n)(c)(x-c)^n]/n!, but I have the problem with the numbers again.. I need this to get the interval of convergence via the Ratio test.
I would appreciate your help
