Using calculus, it can be shown that the tangent function can be approximated by the polynomial tan x approx x + frac{2x^{3}}{3!} + frac{16x^{5}}{5!}

Using calculus, it can be shown that the tangent function can be approximated by the polynomial tan x  x + 2x33! + 16x55! where x is in radians. Use a graphing utility to graph the tangent function and its polynomial approximation in the same viewing window. How do the graphs.
