Over the interval how poorly does the tangent line at approximate ? How about the quadratic taylor polynomial?
I'm really not sure of how to approach this one, help please!
Start by writing the Taylor polynomials of order 1 and 2 out.
Now there are two approaches one is to use the remainder term for the Taylor series. The second approach is to plot the three functions over the interval (3,5).
