What do you have for your Taylor series approximation (up to quadratic term) for ln(1+x)?
My question is about e) . So to find the approximation. It is said:
My question is about . I thought I studied my approximations manual fairly in depth however I don't recall if anything was said about ln or anything about ? I am wondering why ln(1+h) seems to be approximately equal to or should I just accept that it is?
Thanks for any responses...
I am trying to solve the problem without using the Taylor series because I just have not gotten there yet. Is (h-h^2/2) the quadratic approximation of ln(1+h) perhaps? The use of ln is throwing me off I think.
P.S. I dug this out of the lecture notes. I think this is the identity that I was looking for:
I am trying to get to the Taylor Series but I have so much to do still.
