2. Let f(x) = sin(2x) and x0 = 0.
(A) Calculate the Taylor approximation T3(x)
(B). Use the Taylor theorem to show that
|sin(2x) − T3(x)| ≤ (2/3)(x − x0)^(4).
(C). Write a Matlab program to compute the errors for x = 1/2^(k) for k = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and verify that
|sin(2x) − T3(x)| = O(|x − x0|^(4)).

x0=0;
%loop for all x values and corresponding error for T3(x)
