I'm not sure what you mean, you want to derive the three series expansions above?

@greysica do I understand that you just want to see how the above statements are derived?

I have to find the way how it works as a function based on mac laurin polinom

I can derive the mcLauren series from the function, but that doesn't sound like what you want.

the Taylor expansion of a function about x=0 is\[f(x)=\sum_{n=0}^\infty{f^{(n)}(0)\over n!}x^n\]where \(f^{(n)}(0)\) is the \(n^{th}\) derivative of the function at x=0

@greysica what Turing Test has mentioned above is general formula for Taylor series about a=0 also Known as Maclaurin series.

@greysica you need Maclaurin Polynomials of the given functions??
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
ok @greysica you there? I'll walk you though it must you must participate the formula for the series expansion of a function about \(x=0\) is\[f(x)=\sum_{n=0}^\infty{f^{(n)}(0)\over n!}x^n\]where \(f^{(n)}(0)\) is the \(n^{th}\) derivative of \(f(x)\) at the value \(x=0\) so let's start with the first function, \(f(x)=a^x\) what is the first term of the sequence according to the formula? i.e. when \(n=0\)

what is \(f^{(0)}(x)\) when \(f(x)=a^x\) that is, what is the 0th derivative?

devivative of 0 = 1 ?

I dont understand about derivative actually .. is that ax^x1 ?
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
no, the \(0^{th}\) derivative means we don't take the derivative at all; it's just the function so \(f^{(0)}(x)=f(x)=a^x\) now what then is \(f^{(0)}(0)\) ?

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
you say you don't know how to take the derivative of a function?

ya , I dont know how , I really confuse about this subject

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yes, and what is f(0) in this case?

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
f(x)=a^x f(0)=1 correct what about the rest of the parts of the formula?\[T_n(a^x)={f^{(n)}(0)\over n!}x^n\] we agree that \(f^{(n)}(0)=1\) right? now where else in this formula do we need to plug in zero to get the first term?

f(n)(0)=1 1 ?? 0!

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
right should have written f^(0)(0) but still, that's right so what does all that simplify to?
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[f^{(0)}(0)=f(0)=a^0=1\] and \[x^0=1\]true, but\[0!\neq0\]
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
\[0!=1\]by definition

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so try again, what does it simplify too?

\[T_0(a^x)={f^{(0)}(0)\over 0!}x^0={a^0\over0!}x^0=?\]
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
correct, that is the first term :)
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
so let's write that down somewhere because we will need it later:\[T_0(a^x)=1\]now we try to find \(T_1(a^x)\) so now we use the formula\[T_n(a^x)={f^{(n)}(0)\over n!}x^n\]with \(n=1\) what do you get? (this should take you a moment to figure out, i'll brb.

in case you have forgotten your derivatives use this list http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/pdf/Calculus_Cheat_Sheet_Derivatives_Reduced.pdf and tell me what you get for the next term like I said, I'm going to the store, brb

and what is \(f^{(1)}(0)\) for \(f(x)=a^x\) ?
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
I don't think you have forgotten what I said that \(f^{(n)}(x)\) means it means the \(n^{th}\) derivative of the function \(f(x)\) so what is \(f^{(1)}(x)\) considering that \(f(x)=a^x\)

n^th ? what does mean ?
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
it means the nth number derivative n=1 is the first derivative n=2 is the second derivative n=3 is the third derivative etc.

greysicaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so 1^1 1 ?? 1!
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
first you need to find the correct derivative of the function since n=1 that means we need the first derivative of the function what is the first derivative of \(f(x)=a^x\) ?

greysicaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
1! = 2 right ? 1! means 1+1*1 = 2 ? like that ?

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
no, the question we need to answer is: if\[f(x)=a^x\]what is\[f^{(1)}(x)=f'(x)=?\]there should be no number in the answer to the question I am asking you

ignore every other part of the formula for now, we are just trying to figure out the numerator part at the moment
 one year ago

TuringTestBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
look on the list I gave you http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/pdf/Calculus_Cheat_Sheet_Derivatives_Reduced.pdf find your function though if you have problems taking the derivative of functions this is going to be nearly impossible for you

no sorry I can't really help you if you can't take the derivative you may need to retake calculus 1 if this is a problem

natural logarithm (base e)\[\huge\log_e(a)=\ln a\]so what you just found above from the chart is the first derivative of the function is\[f^{(1)}(x)\]so what is\[f^{(1)}(0)\]? (plug in zero into what you found for the derivative)

Taylor series are tough for many people, so don't feel bad. I was watching the MIT multivariable calc lecture, and when the teacher said they needed Taylor series to solve a problem the whole class was like "NO!" hahaa so you're not alone, but you won't get there unless you make sure you understand derivatives very well, so work on that in the meantime first. Don't feel ashamed, just try to identify your problem areas and don't give up! good luck :D

...and you are NOT stupid, so don't say that :P just review your derivatives you're welcome, and good luck :)
