Homework Help: Taylor Polynomial

  1. Apr 8, 2008 #1
    Why does f(x) = abs (0) not have the first Taylor polynomial center at Xo = 0 ?
    Does it have second Taylor polynomial center at Xo = 0 ?

    What is the derivative of |x| at x= 0?

    That only explains that f(x) does not have second Taylor polynomial center at Xo=0. What about the first Taylor polynomial ?
    Thanks a lot for reply
