Zero. The absolute value |n| is positive for any real number. Subtracting it from itself is zero.

What are the rules for adding numbers whose signs are different?

Positive plus positive is positive. Negative plus negative is negative. Positive plus negative is positive if the absolute value of the positive number is greater than the absolute value of the negative one. Positive plus negative is negative if the absolute value of the negative number is greater than the absolute value of the positive one.

What is the difference of a positive integer n and twice its absolute value?

Since n is positive, |n| = n, so you have 2n - n = n. The difference is n.

What is the absolute value of a number?

Its distance from zero, always a positive number. The absolute value of a positive number is that number. The absolute value of a negative number is its positive equivalent. Usually denoted by vertical bars |n| The absolute value of both 7 and -7 is 7 |-7| = 7 |7| = 7 * * * * * Minor error above: the absolute value of 0 is 0, so not "always a positive number".


Using the remainder formula for the Taylor polynomial approximation estimate the error in your approximation to sin n?

If you use n terms from the Taylor expansion, the absolute value of the error is less than [|x|^(2n+1)]/(2n+1)!If you use n terms from the Taylor expansion, the absolute value of the error is less than [|x|^(2n+1)]/(2n+1)!If you use n terms from the Taylor expansion, the absolute value of the error is less than [|x|^(2n+1)]/(2n+1)!If you use n terms from the Taylor expansion, the absolute value of the error is less than [|x|^(2n+1)]/(2n+1)!
