taylor series in c++
Posted 09 July 2010  04:11 AM
please see this picture
now my question if x = 2.3145
Q1 how much will be cosine, sine and tangent?
Q2 i tried to ues the above fourmlaes to find the value of x but it's not correct,so could you please show me how can i cuclate it?
please note that i'm really poor in math
then after i know the answers i can do it in c++
waiting for you

2. Then check out our snippet section
In short, The Taylor Series is an approximation of the trig function(s).

If you look at the full series, you get an infinite sum (so getting a precise value isn't possible). So I would imagine that your calculator does something along the lines of evaluating the part of the taylor series until a reasonable approximation is made.

here is my way whan i want to use the fourma for sin(x)
lt say x = 1
sin(1) = 1  1^3/3*2*1 + 1^5/5*4*3*2*1 and so on, but this way is not correct
so i;m lookeing for the correct way ( x = 1)
so can anybody show me?
one more Q
what is the relationship between the forumlas above and this forumla

To evaluate sin(pi) you would calculate sin(pi) = pi  (pi^3)/3! + (pi^5)/5!  (pi^7)/7! + (pi^9)/9! ... and you would keep going until you have the desired precision. However, in this case sin(pi) is simply equal to 0. Also, note that for a positive integer N, N! = N*(N1)*(N2)*...*2*1. So 5! would be equal to 5*4*3*2*1 = 120.

#include <iostream> #include <cmath> using namespace std; double factorial(double num) { double ret = 1; while(num > 0) { ret *= num; num; } return ret; } double MySine(double rad, int n) { double value = 0; for(int i = 0; i < n; i++) { value += pow(1.0, i) / factorial((2*i) + 1) * pow(rad, ((2*i) + 1)); } return value; } int main() { double p = 3.1415926; cout<<"Sine of pi is: " <<MySine(p, 12) <<endl; return 0; }
The factorial function simply evaluates N!  Then MySine approximates Sin(rad) by using it's taylor series expansion.

and i find the correct way
first i have to do this
3!=6
5!=120
7!=5040
9!=362880
then
sin(1)=11/6+1/1201/5040+1/362880

this is my function to approximate sin(x)
float sin(float x) { float result = x; int limit = 15; int sign = 1; for(int i=3 ; i<limit ; i+=2,sign=sign) result += sign*result*(x*x)/(i*(i1)); return result; }
and this to approximate cos(x)
float cos(float x) { float result = 1; int limit = 15; int sign = 1; for(int i=2 ; i<limit ; i+=2,sign=sign) result += sign*result*(x*x)/(i*(i1)); return result; }
but the answer is not clear in some cases and in other cases it displays wrong answers
try to input 1.5707963
cos should equals to 0.0000000
but my function shows 0.263853, so the answer is not that good
waiting for you
