(a) f ( x ) = ln(1 2 x ) ln(1 + x ) ) f (0) = ln 1 ln 1 = 0; f 0 ( x ) = 2 1 2 x 1 1 + x ) f 0 (0) = 2 1 = 3; f 00 ( x ) = 4 (1 2 x ) 2 + 1 (1 + x ) 2 ) f 00 (0) = 4 + 1 = 3; f 000 ( x ) = 16 (1 2 x ) 3 2 (1 + x ) 3 ) f 000 (0) = 16 2 = 18; (4 marks) f (4) ( x ) = 96 (1 2 x ) 4 + 6 (1 + x ) 4 : So P 3 ( x ) = f (0) + f 0 (0) x + f 00 (0) x 2 2! + f 000 (0) x 3 3! = 0 3 x 3 x 2 2! 18
