I have just finished a unit on constructing taylor and maclaurin polynomials and series.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However I am really lost on how to find the answer to this problem that i found online for the test review and its going to be on my test, I know how to construct a maclaurin polynomial and have a vague sense of how to use it, but since the polynomial is centered at zero and the two graphs don't intersect at zero, isn't there some degree of error?

gahh, I don't understand and would really appreaciate a nudge in the right direction..

Here is the problem:
