Unformatted text preview: f ( x ) = x 3 ! 2 x 2 + 3 x + 5 and show that it is an exact representation of f ( x ) . 9. Find the Maclaurin Polynomial of order n for f ( x ) = 1 (1 ! x ) . Then use it with n = 4 to approximate each of the following. (a) f (0.1) (b) f (0.5) (c) f (0.9) (d) f (2) How does this example show you that the Maclaurin series can be exceedingly poor if x is far from zero?...
