# Approximating a Function Value using a Taylor Polynomial

APCALC-5VGK7J

What is the approximate value of $\sin\left( \frac { 1 }{ 2 } \right)$ obtained by using a fourth-degree Taylor polynomial for $\sin\left( x \right)$ about $x=0$?

A

$1-\cfrac { 1 }{ 8 } +\cfrac { 1 }{ 384 }$

B

$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 } -\cfrac { 1 }{ 48 }$

C

$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 } -\cfrac { 1 }{ 8 }$

D

$1-\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 } -\cfrac { 1 }{ 24 }$
