## Homework Statement

I am asked to evaluate the following sum S=Sigma(n=0 to N) x^n/n! (namely, e^x as n->Inf) for N=10:10:100 and x=10, so that every element S(i) is a partial sum which approximates function e^x with different accuracy. Below is my code, which doesn't work.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

x=10;

N=10;

i=0;

while (N<=100),

S(i)=double(symsum(x^n/sym('n!'), n, 0, N));

i=i+1;

N=N+10;

end

Would anyone please tell me where I am going wrong and how it may be corrected? I'd appreciate some guidance.
