a) $f\left(x\right)=\mathrm{arcsin}x$
${P}_{3}\left(x\right)=\sum _{k=0}^{3}\frac{{f}^{\left(k\right)}\left(0\right)}{k!}{x}^{k}$
${P}_{3}\left(x\right)=x+\frac{{x}^{3}}{6}$

$\begin{array}{|cccccccc|}\hline x& -0.75& -0.50& -0.25& -0.0& 0.25& 0.50& 0.75\\ f\left(x\right)& -0.848& -0.524& -0.253& 0& 0.253& 0.524& 0.848\\ {P}_{3}\left(x\right)& -0.820& -0.521& -0.253& 0& 0.253& 0.521& 0.820\\ \hline\end{array}$

On the graph below: Purple curve = $f\left(x\right)$ Orange curve = ${P}_{3}\left(x\right)$ Step 3
