Maclaurin series formula helps in writing a function as a series (or sum) of terms involving the derivatives of the function. This formula helps in finding the approximate value of the function. In math, sometimes it is really difficult to evaluate some functions. In such cases, we use the approximation formulas where the function is expressed as a series. There are two such approximation formulas:
Taylor series formula
Maclaurin series formula
Let us learn these along with a few solved examples in the upcoming sections.
