the error of a taylor series of order(I think that's the right word) n is given by(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \frac{f^{n+1} (s)}{n!} (x-a)^n [/tex]

I think this is right. The error in a linear approximation would simply be

[tex] \frac{f''(s)}{2} (x-a)^2 [/tex]

My question is what is s and how do I find it. Use linear approximation of √(47) if you need to use an example because I just did that question so it might be easier to explain.
