Approximate e^0.6 to 3 decimal places.
I am not sure how to approach this without a calculator. I don't think we are allowed to use a calculator but I'm not 100% sure on that either.

well, it is easy enough with a calculator; there's an e^x button.
can you use Taylor Series?
e^x = 1 + x + 1/2 x^2 + 1/6 x^3 + ...
1 + (.6) = 0.4
1 + (.6) + (.6)^2/2 = 0.58
...+(0.6)^3/3!+(0.6)^4/4! = 0.5494
...+(0.6)^5/5!+(0.6)^6/6! = 0.5488
what other approximation tools are available to you?

We haven't learned the Taylor Series. But it's okay! Luckily enough we're allowed to use a calculator :) Thank you!
