Hello, Tom from everystepcalculuseverystepphysic.com. Maclaurin series, let me show you how to do that in my programs, index 8 to get to the menu the main menu I’m going to scroll down to Maclaurin series and you can go on your calendar second and get through the alphabet quick where you want to go to I’m just going to scroll down here because the simulator sometimes screws up if you do that, so I’m to choose Maclaurin series, Maclaurin series is when your center is 0 (a) is 0 and Taylor series you have great than 0, here is the formula for Maclaurin series [f^n(0)*x^n]/ n! You should always write formulas on your paper you will get couple extra points and remember calculous is always good and partial credits on the class curves and you can get more than the person sitting next to you then you pass that class and that’s all we are interested in passing it not learning nothing, the Taylor series formula, we are going to enter the function we have to press alpha before you enter anything in these entry lines here so we are going to press alpha the function is alpha x* yellow button on then equal sign for e, (e) is a minus x and then we are going to put 0 in for the Maclaurin because that’s what we are doing finding the Maclaurin series and the we are going to have to press alpha again, alpha 0 and it’s going to show you what you have entered and you can change it if you want that’s if it isn’t right, we write this formula on our paper right? We are going to do that, we do the first 5 derivatives of that function which is here then we take those derivatives and we set it as to equal to zero, enter zero in for x and we come up with this an we take those answer’s and divide it by the factorials of 1,2,3,4,5 which turn out to be these answer’s 1,-1, 1/2, -1/6, 1/24 and we enter those answer’s into the formula here (x-0) to the 1,2,3,4,5 powers and here is the answer f(x)=0 don’t forget that 0 plus x plus minus x squared plus x cubed over 2 plus minus x to the 4/6 etc.etc. pretty neat huh everywhere is.com don’t try to pass calculous without these programs go to my site buy them enjoy passing calculous, okay calculous should only be taught to math majors not to us but since they do that we need to do anything we can to pass it and get out of there hey have a good one.
