Using calculus, it can be shown that the secant function can be approximated by the polynomial secx1+x22!+5x44! where x is in radians. Use a graphing utility to graph the secant function and its polynomial approximation in the same viewing window. How do the graphs compare?

Using calculus, it can be shown that the arctangent function can be approximated by the polynomial
arctan x  x  x33 + x55  x77
where x is in radians.
a) Use a graphing utility to graph the arctangent function and its polynomial approximation in the same viewing window. How do the graphs compare?
b) Study the pattern in the polynomial approximation of the arctangent function and predict the next term. Then repeat part (a). How does the accuracy of the approximation change when an additional term is added?
