I'm trying to write a Taylor Series for definite time periods of the monthly inventory charge due to the stock
on hand. Almost like a amortization calculation, but I believe the Taylor Series will work better.
But I'm unsure how to write the summation as k goes from 1 to 3. This is an example.
Do you have suggestions?

Heather,
I am really not understanding what you are asking here. Perhaps you could explain or send an example of what you are trying to do. Are you sure you want to use a Taylor Series or might you simply want to use summation notation to represent a sum?
