    I got .3805... for both the mcclaurin series and actually putting in tan^-1(0.4) in my calculator

    :D yea i figured that was probably the problem... next time just post your answers and I would've known immediately Specifically from the fact that the result of arctan has to fall between -pi/4 and pi/4 meaning the degress answer is way to large to possible be the answer

    This is due to the fact that tan(x) has singularities at those points.... hence arctan's range -1 to 1 corresponds to that
