Please help....Please help....Taylor series
f(x)=sinx a=1 n=3
\[0.8 \le x \le 1.2\]
\[sinx\approx T_3(x)=sin(1)+\frac{cos(1)}{1}(x1)\frac{sin(1)}{2}(x1)^2\frac{cos(1)}{6}(x1)^3\]
(b) Use Taylor's Inequality to estimate the accuracy of the approximation \[f(x)\approx T_n(x)\] lies in the given interval.
\[\leftR_3(x)\right\le \frac{M}{4!} {\leftx1\right}^4\]
I'm almost there.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here'es the idea. We've made a taylor polynomial to approximate the function. Now we're trying to make a statement about how accurate the approximation is. Taylor's inequality allows us to do that. Here's how. We look at the derivative one higher than our approximation, and we look at it on the interval that we're interested in. If we can pick out a number, call it M, that the derivative is less than on the whole interval, then that allows us to use that M to limit the error.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The basic statement is: \( \large f^{n+1} \le M\) Therefore, \(R_n < \text{some thing dependent on M}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The lower the M I'm able to pick, the better. Why? Because it allows me to put a lower cieling on the possible error.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep. So we pick the lowest limit that we're allowed 0.8 in this case

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm really sorry, John. I'm really trying to understand this. Ok here is what I understand. I see that you have drawn three unique functions, and each function was given an interval, and a maximum was chosen. The maximum that you have chosen is the M. The derivative should be less than M on the whole interval.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That M allows us to put a cap on the error

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What we're trying to do with M is to put a cap on the error. That's why we need to find an actual value for M.

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That value M is greater than the next derivative up.
