The remainder term in Taylor series, also known as the remainder or the remainder function, is an expression that represents the difference between a function and its Taylor polynomial approximation. It quantifies the error introduced by using a finite number of terms in the Taylor series to approximate the function.

The most common form of the remainder term in Taylor series is given by the Lagrange form of the remainder, which is expressed using the function's higher-order derivatives.

For a function ( f(x) ) that is ( (n+1) )-times differentiable on an interval containing ( a ) and ( x ), the Lagrange form of the remainder term ( R_n(x) ) in the Taylor series centered at ( a ) is given by:

[ R_n(x) = \frac{f^{(n+1)}(c)}{(n+1)!}(x - a)^{n+1} ]

where ( c ) is some point between ( a ) and ( x ).

The remainder term allows us to estimate the error when approximating a function with its Taylor polynomial. By choosing an appropriate number of terms ( n ) and analyzing the behavior of the remainder, we can ensure that the Taylor series approximation provides a sufficiently accurate representation of the function within a given interval.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
