Since this function is its own derivative and takes on the value 1 at x 5 0, we suspect that it must be e x . 4. If y 5 f ( x ), then } d d y x } 5 y and y 5 1 when x 5 0. 5.

It is risky to draw any conclusions about the interval of convergence from just three partial sums, but so far the convergence to the graph of y 5 e x only looks good on ( 2 1, 1). Your answer might differ. [ 2 5, 5] by [ 2 3, 3] 7. The next three partial sums show that the convergence extends outside the interval ( 2 1, 1) in both directions, so ( 2 1, 1) was apparently an underestimate. Your answer in #6 might have been better, but unless you guessed “all real numbers,” you still underestimated! (See Example 3 in
