(9/1/08) Math 10B. Lecture Examples. Section 10.1. Taylor polynomials Example 1 Find the frst-, second-, and third-degree Taylor polynomial approximations o± y = ln x , centered at x = 1. Answer: P 1 ( x ) = x - 1 P 2 ( x ) = ( x - 1) - 1 2 ( x - 1) 2 P 3 ( x ) = ( x - 1) - 1 2 ( x - 1) 2 + 1 3 ( x - 1) 3 Figures A1a, A1b and A1c show y = ln x (the heavy curve) and the Taylor polynomials (the fner curves). x 2 4 y 1 2 3 x 2 4 y 1 2 3 x 2 4 y 1 2 3 P 1 ( x ) = x - 1 P 2 ( x ) = ( x - 1) - 1 2 ( x - 1) 2 P 3 = ( x - 1) - 1 2 ( x - 1) 2 + 1 3 ( x - 1) 3 Figure A1a Figure A1b Figure A1c Example 2 (a) Find the ±ourth-degree Taylor Polynomial approximation P 4 ( x ) o± f ( x ) = e x centered at x = 0. (b) How accurately does the polynomial P 4 ( x ) ±rom part (a) approximate 9 + e x at x = 0 . 1 and x = 4? Answer: (a) P 4 ( x ) = 10 + x + 1 2! x 2 + 1 3! x 3 + 1 4! x 4 (The graphs o± y = 9 + e x and y = P 4 ( x ) are shown in Figure A2.)
