I need help solving the following (it is due tomorrow and it just got assigned yesterday ):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

use series methods to obtain the approximate value of integral(from 0 to1) of (1-e^x)/x dx

What I have thought of so far is to use the Taylor series approx for e^x and carry that out to a few terms then solve for 1 and 0 and plug it into the original equation but I'm not sure that I'm headed in the right direction. I took a year off from school and now I'm having to relearn a bunch of things that were once simple but now seem quite challenging. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
