Hi

Trying to work with confusing Taylor series....any assistance would be much appreciated!!

How can I use T(x)=5-9((x-2)^2)-3((x-2)^3)

to approximate the f(0) ????

I realize that Taylor series f(x)=f(a)+f'(a)(x-a)+f''(a)((x-a)^2)etc...

but the above T(x) is centered at x=2,

BUT I need to know when f(x) is centered at x=0

please assist! thank you!
