Question: Taylor polynomials in Maple?

Hi everyone!

Would really appreciate some help here.

So I'm going to have my exam next week with all these math problems. We're aloud to check our answers with Maple once.

So I wonder how I would go about this with the Taylorpolynomials? I've tried getting it to work with Maple now but I can't figure it out.

Lets say I got a question like this:

"Given the intial value problem y'(x)=x(y(x))^2, y(1)=2. Calculate the 2.order Taylorpolynomial with the "development point" 1.

I know the answer is suppose to be this:2+4(t-1)+10(t-1)^2 

 

But I can't get that answer in Maple...any ideas?
