1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find Rates of convergence for function as h->0
lim(h->0) [sin(h)-h*cos(h)]/h=0


2. Relevant equations

I know that how to do the Taylor expansion with summation but I don't really understand when the xi error constant comes into play. How do you decide which factor to apply it to.

3. The attempt at a solution
Back of the book says O(h^2) for the answer
