I'm having trouble with a sample exam question. I don't really understand the question, don't know what section of the book it relates to, and don't have any idea on how to solve it. I might be in trouble :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone provide any suggestions or guidance on how I might go about solving this problem? Again, I'm not even really sure what's being asked.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose that [tex] L = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} f(h)[/tex]

and [tex] L -f(h) = c_6 h^6 + c_9 h^9 + \cdots [/tex]

Find a combination of f(h) and f(h/2) that is a much better estimate of L
