I already learn to use Taylor series as:

f(x) = ∑ f

But i don´t see why the serie change when we use differents x

Por example:

f(x) = x

to express Taylor series in x

f(x) = f(0) + f(0) (x-0) + ..... = 0 due to f(0) = (0)

to x

f(x) = 1 + 2(x-1) + (x-1)

Why happens this?

and, when we use the Taylor series, which situations we said that we can despreciate some terms, like cuadratic terms?

f(x) = ∑ f
