n=1 (2n)! 3.8 a) Find the Taylor series about x = π of cos(x). Your answer should clearly
indicate the pattern of the terms. (Note the center, π .)
b) Find the Taylor series of ln(x) at x = 1.
3.9 Give the Taylor polynomial at 0 of degree 4 for each of the following functions. Use the easiest method you know, including your knowledge of the Taylor
series for sinx, ex , (1 + x)p , etc.
a) f (x) = x2 cos(x).
b) g (x) = √
c) f (x) = 1

3.10 The graph of y = f (x) passes through the point (0, −2) and near that
point the function is decreasing and concave up. If the third degree Taylor
polynomial of f near 0 is P2 (x) = a + bx + cx2 what are the signs of a, b and c?
2 b) If f (x) = e−x ﬁnd f (8) (0) and f (9) (0), that is, the 8th and 9th derivative of
f at 0. Suggestion: Consider the Taylor series of f and look at the coeﬃcients
of x8 and x9 ....
