Hello, I was wondering if anyone could explain to me the thought process behind how you find the maximum remainder of a Taylor series?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I read the wiki article and didn't help me at all,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor's_theorem

My book talks about something like this(image is wiki's):

but I don't understand how its derived or what it really means.

Thanks for any help.
