Approximations Choose a Taylor series and a center point a to approximate the following quantities with an accuracy of at least 10−4.
Choosing the function centered at 0 to approximate .
We know that the taylor series for centered at 0 is :
Using the above taylor series to approximate
The actual value of is 0.76604444311.
Hence the approximate value of is .
