Use the error estimate for Taylor polynomials to find an n such that(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

| e - (1 + (1/1!) + (1/2!) + (1/3!) + ... + (1/n!) | < 0.000005

all i have right now is the individual components...

f(x) = e^{x}

T_{n}(x) = 1/ (n-1)!

k/(n-1)! |x-a|^{n+1}= 0.000005

a = 0

x = 1

I don't know where to go from here
