## Homework Statement

Let T_(4)(x): be the Taylor polynomial of degree 4 of the function ` f(x) = ln(1+x) ` at `a = 0 `.

Suppose you approximate ` f(x) ` by ` T_(4)(x) `, find all positive values of x for which this approximation is within 0.001 of the right answer. (Hint: use the alternating series approximation.)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I gotta be honest, I'm not entirely sure where to even start with this...I've gotten my sealegs when it comes to these series and how to find them and stuff, and I know how to find the error in an alternating series, but I don't know how to do it with an ln function.

The answer is 0.346572421578, fyi.
