I am trying to make a taylor series for e^x where
e^x = 1+(X/1!)+((X^2)/2!)+((X^3)/3!)+...
and the approximation is sum set n-1 over k=0 f(x)=(x^k)/k!
I know that the k = input('number of terms: '); and x = input('value of "x":');
I know that i can use the factorial(k) as a portion of the approxamation section of this script.

If you write it as:
e^x = x^0/0! + x^1/1! + x^2/2! + .... + x^n/n!
then you can see the pattern easier.
I don't want to do your homework for you, but look at this hint:
T = 0; % Initial value of T.
for ii = 0:3
T = T + ii; % Easy to change this to meet your needs...
end
T % Show new value of T. Compare to 0+1+2+3
