The third order Taylor polynomial generated by f(x) at x=0 is of the form P_{3}(x) = f(0) + f'(0) x + (1/2!) f''(0) x² + (1/3!) f'''(0) x³. With f(0)=0, f'(0)= 1, f"(0)=0, and f'''(0)=2 this becomes P_{3}(x) = x + (1/3!) 2 x³ = x + (1/3) x³ . 1/26/2014 | Andre W. Comment Comments Thanks a lot. 1/26/2014 | Sun from Los Angeles, CA Comment
