    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    how to you find like the answer for f(1.5), or f(1.00001) those kind of question? thanks

    with like eq. = f(b)(x-b)... am i making sense? thanks

    You aren't being very specific. You write the taylor series for f(1+x) and put x=0.5 or x=0.00001. Does that make sense?

    and then do i do like f(1)+f'(1)(0.5)+f''(1)(0.5)^x/(2!).... like that?

    thanks!

    Exactly. It's f'(1)(0.5)^2/(2!), but I think you knew that.
