Homework Help: Taylor series question.

  1. Nov 2, 2012 #1

    What polynomial should I use for finding Taylor series for 28^(3/5) up to the first order? I mean, aside x^3 around 2. Any suggestions?

    Use the Taylor series of f(x)=x^(3/5) around a=32 (=2^5).

    Did you not mean to write =2^3 (Instead of "=2^5")?

    I know that 32=2^5.

    Yes, and that is the fifth power of an integer that is closest to 28. That's the point.
