I know how to find out if an infinitesimal delta is of the first order (if delta*y/delta*x=dy/dx+epsilon is approximately equal to (dy/dx)*delta*x, but how do you find out if an infinitesimal is of second order or higher and how do you find out what that order is?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Note: I will update this question with typesetting once I figure out how to use LaTeX.
