  1. Dec 7, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I was able to express the time delay as D(1-[tex]\frac{1}{1-\delta}[/tex]). However, I don't have a lot of experience using Taylor series and did not use one to obtain said answer for the time delay. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    They want you to expand the expression,

    1 / (1-δ)

    as a Taylor series. So you'll need the derivative of that expression with respect to δ.
