Lance Armstrong is moving with speed

35 feet/sec and acceleration 4 feet/sec2 when he crosses the starting line of a stage in the Tour de France. Use a degree two Taylor polynomial T2(t) to estimate how far he travels in

the next second.

1. distance = 38 feet

2. distance = 37 feet

3. distance = 39 feet

4. distance = 41 feet

5. distance = 40 feet

Shouldn't it be 41?

My work:

f(t)=35t+2t^2

f'(t)=35+4t

f''(t)=4

39(x-1)/1! + 4(x-1)^2/2!

39+2=41 (41 is incorrect)
