We sometimes want to find the exact value of an infinite series, but, usually doing this is very difficult and time-consuming. However, with only a few terms, we can get a good approximation of the value of the series, and the maximum error is the error bound.

How do we find the error bound?

Problems

1. What is the formula for the error bound?
