Hey, I don't have an exact problem that needs to be solved, but I do have this presentation to give on the Taylor Series. Can anyone explain in layman's terms what this abstract concept represents? Maybe you can provide an example also? Please, I need all the help I can get
I don't understand really what its purpose is. I understand that it's an approximation, but of what I don't know. Are there any number solutions or are the answers just infinite summations? Determining the general formula at the beginning, I also do not understand.
The idea is that we express some function, which is not a polynomial, as a Taylor series. Now a Taylor series is simply an infinite polynomial. And since it is easy to work with polynomials it becomes easier to work with this function.
