  1. May 17, 2010 #1
    I'm trying to understand the reminder of Maclaurin polynomials

    Here I show few attempts to use substitution on known polynomials.

    Where I'm wrong?

    The only thing you are doing wrong is that you have "[itex]R_2(x)[/itex]" and "[itex]R_4(x)[/itex]". What you should have is [itex]R_2(x+2)[/itex] and [itex]R_2(x^2+ 2)[/quote] as you do on the right.
