I have the idea that I could use the McLauren expansion for e^x \[e ^{x}=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{ x ^{n} }{ n! }\]

So the two first expansions would be \[1+x\] but since I have to add the Lagrange reminder it would be proven bigger than 1+x

Would that be somewhat correct?

\[e ^{x}=\sum_{n=0}^{1} \frac{ x ^{n} }{ n! }=1+x +\frac{ f ^{(n+1)}(\xi) }{(n+1)! }x ^{n+1}\] \[e ^{x}=\sum_{n=0}^{1} \frac{ x ^{n} }{ n! }=1+x +\frac{ f ^{(2)}(\xi) }{(2)! }x ^{2} \] \[f(x)=e ^{x}; f \prime(x)=e ^{x}; f \prime \prime(x)=e {^x}\] so that gives the remainder \[\frac{ e ^{\xi}x ^{2}}{2! }\] and \[e ^{x}=1+x+\frac{ e ^{\xi}x ^{2}}{2! }\ \ge 1+x\] Is this a genuine proof that\[e^{x}\ge 1+x\] ?

Oh forgot to write that \[\xi \in (0,x)\]

i think we can use by calculus principle...

What about the Mclaurinexpansion I made, doesn't it prove the fact that it's bigger?

sorry i forgot about Mclaurinexpansion, i f by differential i got it

How did you show it using differentials?

e^x ≥ x + 1 e^x  1  x ≥ 0 let given f(x) = e^x  1  x, so f '(x) = e^x  1 criticals points of f, hapended when saat f '(x) = 0 so, e^x  1 = 0 get x = 0 to knowing the kind (max or min) of f, use the 2nd derivative so, f ''(x) = e^x for x=0, gives f ''(0) = 1 > 0 because f ''(0) > 0, therefore its kind is minimum the minimum value of f is f(0) = e^0  1  0 = 0 because f has the minimum value, is 0 so,, obviously f(x) ≥ 0 e^x  1  x ≥ 0 e^x ≥ x + 1 (proof) :)

Oh that's a good way to show it, pretty simple to, thank you RadEn! :)
