Correct! You could take the limit of the ratio of them.
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

ok.next?

What is being said in the above statement? if x = .1 how accurate do you expect that series to be?

if i'm not wrong that's the approximation of the sin(x) function.
well it means that sin(x)x+x^3/6x^5/120<c*x^6 for some const. c>0
i expect the value of xx^3/6+x^5/120 to be at most 1 away from the value we wanted to calculate in the first place.

The first part is correct. I do not like the second part.

hi bobbym
i didn't see the decimal point.well my second guess would be 10^(6) but i'm not sure that one's correct either.could you tell me how it's done?

Yes, but it is better if you see it for yourself. Start by computing Sin[.1].

i have nothing against doing it by myself.just walk me through it.
sin(0.1)=0.0998... approx. 0.1

Use radians?

Hi;
That is not correct, please be a little more careful and I am walking you through it.
Hi John;
Yes, it is in radians.

You will need more decimal places for this example.

ok then.can do. 0.0998334.i think it's enough.

Now compute using that series the value .1

0.0998334...the same
i used alpha.it says the difference is about 2*10^(11)

Hi anonimnystefy;
Power went out for many hours and is only intermittent right now, sorry for the delay.
Here is a new question.
Big O gave us an error estimate of about 10^6 we can see that the error is much smaller than that, about 10^11. Can you explain that?

hi bobbym
well Big Oh gives us the maximum difference between the real value and the estimated value.
that's why it's sin(x)f(x)<x^6 where f(x) is a function of x i wrote above.
^

this here says so.the abs. difference of the real function value and the approx. value is less that x^6 for every x we have.

Also Big O does not care about a constant multiple that could be large. It is only concerned about the asymptotic properties.

next one please.
btw,i just found out that the number coming out of justlookingforthemoment's saxophone av is a Harshad number.

Hi;
Or:
Now because (n+2)^3 ≤ 8n^3 when n>1
An application:
I wish to evaluate e^(.1) using a taylor series to an error less than .000001 how can I do that?
