hi bobbym

i would say e^n,but don't know why.

Correct! You could take the limit of the ratio of them.

I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

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

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

if i'm not wrong that's the approximation of the sin(x) function.

well it means that |sin(x)-x+x^3/6-x^5/120|<c*x^6 for some const. c>0

i expect the value of x-x^3/6+x^5/120 to be at most 1 away from the value we wanted to calculate in the first place.

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

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?

### Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

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.

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?
