if f(X) = sin(sin(x)), use a graph to find a upper bound for abs(f

^{(4)}(x))

Thanks

Hi ZuzooVn! Welcome to PF!

if f(X) = sin(sin(x)), use a graph to find a upper bound for abs(f^{(4)}(x))

ok … draw y = sin(x).

Now turn the paper sideways and draw x = sin(y) …

what do you get?

yes, i have done it .

But because i'm a Vietnamese, so my English skill isn't good :D

Now, tiny-tim, what in the world are you talking about? I'm afraid I dont' see your point either.

I would probably use "brute strength"

If y= sin(sin(x)), then y'= -cos(sin(x))(-cos(x))= cos(x)cos(cos(x)). Now, instead of actually doing the other derivatives (because they get really messy!), use the fact that the nth derivative of (f(x)g(x)) will be [itex]\sum _nC_i f^{i}g^{n-i}[/itex] to see that we will, after three more derivatives, have a sum of 4 terms with binomial coeficients times sin and cos- and the largest possible value for sine or cosine is 1.

You need to define what f

You need to define what f^{(4)}(x) means. Do you mean, the fourth iteration of f on x, i.e. f o f o f o f (x)? Or do you mean (as others have interpreted) the fourth derivative of f?

I means the fourth derivative of f

Do you mean least upper bound? I get 8 as an upper bound.
