Look at the form of the remainder of the Maclaurin polynomial. Set if to beOriginally Posted byFilthypeasant

less than 0.0001 then solve to find the minimum degree that satisfies

the inequality. This may need to be done by trial and error.

And it looks to me as though the required degree is 16.

Look at the post on Taylor polynomials just below this one for more details.
