(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Derive the following formula using Taylor series and then establish the error terms for each.

2. Relevant equations

f ' (x) ≈ (1/2*h) [4*f(x + h) - 3*f(x) - f(x+2h)]

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly have no idea how to go about deriving this. The professor did not require a book for this class, and he never did an example. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
