Recall that if y = f(ac) is a function and a0 + a1(:1: — a) + a2(a: — a)2 + (13(3) — (1)3 + a4(a: -— (1)4 + = z an(a7 — a)" is the Taylor Series (or Maclaurin series if a = 0 ) centered at :1: = a for y = f (11:) , then (n) a an 2 f n'( ) .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
