How would I solve this problem and only compute the first 12 interations?

Works, I guess.
%x = input('Enter value of x');
x = 2;
value=0;
for i=0:12
value = value + x^i/factorial(i);
end
fprintf('Computed Value: %f', value)
Computed Value: 7.389055
value
value = 7.3891
exp(2)
ans = 7.3891

%% This is more efficient
x = 2;
v = 1;
n = 1;
d = 1;
for i = 1:20
n = n*x;
d = d*i;
v = v + n/d;
end
fprintf('Computed Value: %f', v)
Computed Value: 7.389056

x = 2;
v = 1;
s = 1;
for i = 1:20
s = s * x/i;
v = v + s;
end
fprintf('Computed Value: %f', v)
Computed Value: 7.389056
